Dyslexia is a common Specific learning difficulty primarily affecting reading, writing, and spelling skills, but it does not impact intelligence. It's estimated to affect about 1 in 10 people in the UK. Signs of dyslexia can be identified early in school and include slow reading and writing, letter confusion, poor spelling, and difficulty following written instructions.

 

However, people with dyslexia often excel in creative thinking and problem-solving. Support for dyslexia includes educational assistance, specialised teaching techniques, and assistive technologies. 

 

Dyslexia is more than a reading and writing issue; it affects self-esteem and can lead to depression. Our dyslexia correction program, inspired by the US model and incorporating strategies from Dyslexia Scotland, enhances not just academic performance but also boosts confidence, social skills, and emotional well-being in children.
