Funding to deliver dyslexia support for 3,500 schools

Free support to address dyslexia, specific learning difficulties and literacy difficulties is to be made available for more than 3,500 schools thanks to new funding.

As many as one in 10 children are thought to have dyslexia and specific learning difficulties and the government grant will help fund expert advice, support materials and training for teachers.

The support is being offered by the Dyslexia-SpLD Trust, which is a coalition of organisations hosted by the Driver Youth Trust.

Since 2013, the Dyslexia-SpLD Trust has reached more than 34,500 teachers, including with its Interventions for Literacy materials. It also offers support to parents and local authorities.

Other resources offered by the coalition include a Literacy and Dyslexia Professional Development Framework and factsheets for young people with dyslexia who are doing an Apprenticeship.
