Dyslexia is a difficulty in learning to read, spell and write and is different for everyone.
It can make learning and communicating with others more difficult and can result in low self esteem, high stress and low achievement.
People with dyslexia benefit from spotting it early. If you think your child has dyslexia you should raise this directly with their school.
Our schools are equipped to support learners with dyslexia through effective assessment, planning, support and review. Your child’s school will give you more information.
Information for parents/carers is available via our addressing dyslexia toolkit, which has been used to develop our assessment and intervention procedures. Information is also available on the Dyslexia Scotland website.
