Dyslexia training to be mandatory in Initial Teacher Training

Responsible department: Department for Education

The British Dyslexia Association proposes that Initial Teacher Training course providers should be required to deliver mandatory and consistent dyslexia awareness sessions. The mandatory minimum should be the existing Department of Education 2005 module; available to view at
