Supports and Resources for Teacher and Parents

What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia affects at least 10% of the population (and maybe more) and therefore on average there will be 3 children in every class that could potentially have the condition, even if it has not yet been diagnosed. It is important that all teachers are aware of dyslexia and how to best support children with dyslexia within the classroom.

Dyslexia Resources

Through our work on the Safe Reads project we are compiling a number of useful resources for teachers and parents of children with dyslexia. We intend to update this page regularly with new resources as they become available.

Resources from the iLearnRW project (
