Task 4.3 - At assessments

Children with specific learning difficulties, such as dyslexia, often have a problem with reading, writing and spelling, but are able to demonstrate their ability in other areas if a different method of assessment is used which does not involve extended written work or texts. This however, depends on the individual pupil's attitude to accommodations. Remember that children do not enjoy being singled out as different, so accessing readers and scribes may not be the best solution.
