I'll be proposing a Bill in Parliament to require screening for dyslexia in primary schools. Only with improved screening in primary schools, alongside better teaching & assessment can we truly unleash the potential of people with dyslexia.
1 in 10 people have dyslexia, yet 40% of entrepreneurs are dyslexia and 50% of incarcerated offenders.
I believe that everyone has a contribution to make & it is the role of government to help people make the very best of their lives.
Let's make the UK a global leader in raising the standards of how we identify, teach and assess children who think different.
