Key findings of the ‘Small Change – Big Impact’ research include :

· 76% of parents feel that earlier identification would help their child

· 97% of teachers agree that they need and would benefit from training on dyslexia

· 93% of teachers agree that earlier identification helps them to better support learning needs

· 92% teachers report that their pre-service dyslexia training did not prepare them for the classroom

Recently, I came across this interesting article (which I highly recommend) on @Schooldays_ie. Though this article is short it packs a punch and can only serve to improve and help the life of a student who’s finding school difficult whether it be at primary, secondary or third level.
