Hi
Found the article very interesting. I have never been convinced re dyslexia.It can be a 'career opportunity' for many professionals. Having said that my own daughter has a problem re writing at times. Hope I don't sound dogmatic but nearly twenty years English teaching made me cynical at times. Hope all goes well for you. Like visiting your blog. Your wedding photos are great.

Hi GOK - thanks for stopping by. I know what you mean about career oportunity but I also know what a huge difference getting my son into the right school made - with support staff that were gifted. He now reads for pleasure and is facing his GCSEs with confidence with planned A levels of Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Art.

Dubai neds it Nell. The schools are ffine for the average child but do not fit the needs of the other ends of the spectrum well.

Phillipa - I doubt it will make any difference at all - sadly
