Education Scotland has published a reportwhich shows that children and young people with dyslexia are benefiting from education in their local schools and that teachers are increasingly well equipped to plan for and meet their needs in the classroom. This Education Scotland report is the outcome of an independent review of education for children and young people who have dyslexia which has been carried out on behalf of the Scottish Government. The review covered the experiences of learners in primary, secondary and special schools. It also looked into the provision made by local authorities and at the programmes of initial teacher education currently offered by universities in Scotland.
