Radio interviews by Dyslexia A2Z

Interview on Dysgraphia:

BBC Wiltshire Radio – 14th June 2016. In Maria’s first interview in nearly five years, she discusses Dysgraphia with Graham Seaman.


Reinstate allowances regarding spelling for pupils with dyslexia

Thousands of dyslexic children will be marked as failures under the government’s controversial new primary writing assessments. Pupils will be expected to spell almost 200 words on government word-lists if they are to reach the ‘expected standard’ for writing at the end of Year 6.

No allowance will be made for the tens of thousands of pupils with dyslexia.

One headteacher of a large state comprehensive school said the change would mean that a pupil who had shown a good knowledge and understanding of for example, history – but who had spelling problems due to dyslexia – could well end up with a worse grade than a good speller who had done less well on the history questions. Most people are not aware of this.

A petition was set up but this has now closed.  I am not sure of the outcome but will try to find out and up-date you all on it.
