Starting school is a huge life changing event for any child. As parents, we fully anticipate that when we send our child off to school they will learn to recognise numbers and alphabet letters, and within the first 12 months or even less, start to string letters together into simple identifiable words… But, what happens when this doesn’t happen for our child? When should we be told there may be a learning problem? At what stage is further investigation carried out? Who is responsible for telling us that our child is falling behind, is not learning at the same rate at their classmates and that they may have dyslexia?
As parents these questions can cause us great distress. We worry that there is something seriously wrong when our child does not learn at the same rate as their peers. Who is responsible for ensuring our child does not fall through the gaps of the education system?
This eBook will help you to understand the role and responsibilities of teachers, their training and knowledge when it comes to dyslexia. It will explain why children with dyslexia continue to fall through the gaps and what needs to happen to ensure this doesn’t continue to occur in the future.
