Task 4.2 - At Parents' Evenings

For some parents, reports and parents' evenings can be fraught with anxiety. Often, subject teachers do not actually acknowledge to parents that they are aware that their children are dyslexic. Parents and pupils say they would appreciate teachers acknowledging this. Some parents, however, feel that teachers are not always aware of the various aspects of dyslexia.
