Dyslexia friendly schools in the UK.

Riddick, B. (2006) 'Dyslexia friendly schools in the UK.', Topics in language disorders., 26 (2). pp. 142-156.


This article starts by examining the background to dyslexia support within the context of the National Literacy Strategy in the United Kingdom. It then critically discusses some of the perceived shortcomings of current support for children with dyslexia, and how this has led to the development of a “dyslexia friendly” schools movement in the United Kingdom. The key aspects of dyslexia friendly policy and practice are outlined, and issues relating to the implementation of this policy are explored. Finally, the article considers some of the evidence for the efficacy of this approach, and presents an example of a questionnaire designed to elicit feedback from children on the impact of dyslexia friendly policy.
