Aim: To consider whole school responses to supporting pupils with dyslexia and their parents/carers

The previous sections have highlighted the need for a stress free environment for learning as well as practical approaches and strategies for supporting pupils with dyslexia. It is self-evident that other pupils in the class will benefit from this as well. However, additional benefits for all accrue when dyslexia and literacy difficulties are approached as a whole school issue.
