Dyslexia doesn’t have to be a stumbling block to success and happiness.
One child in ten has dyslexia. The majority of them are intelligent, good talkers and very creative but there are many things they find difficult. Schools have a key role to play in making them become independent, confident and successful young people.
Sometimes teachers, pupils and support staff need a tool such as Dealing with Dyslexia at School to help them talk about issues around dyslexia in a non-confrontational way.

Written by Sal McKeown, award winning journalist and author. Her specialist area is dyslexia and her book How to Help your Dyslexic and Dyspraxic Child was her first foray into the parenting market. Before writing the book she spent many years talking to students and their families about dyslexia and researching famous dyslexics such as Richard Branson, Bill Gates, John Lennon and Picasso.
Her approach comes down firmly on the side of good relationships, good teaching and family support.
