Working with parents

There is lots of helpful information for parents on Dyslexia Scotland’s website.

In 2022, The Addressing Dyslexia Toolkit Working Group and Dyslexia Scotland made 3 short films covering some of the most common questions from parents. They cover the identification of dyslexia in schools, private assessments, teacher training, self esteem and post-school support.
