Dyslexia Demystified

Welcome to this independent, fad-free and no-nonsense website.

It offers plenty of evidence-informed, practical advice and information for any parent or carer whose child needs help with the basics of reading, writing and spelling.

Primary teachers, SENCos, tutors for adult basic skills, in fact anyone involved with the teaching of early reading or reading intervention should find the content useful.

High quality phonics is the educational vaccine that protects children from illiteracy.

Throughout the website, a book frequently referenced is Early Reading Instructionwhat science really tells us about how to teach reading’ (ERI) by Professor Diane McGuinness. I strongly recommend that you get hold of a copy in order to check the references and more extensive reading on the subject.

Sir Jim Rose, chair of England’s 2006 Rose Review, describes Dyslexics.org.uk as, ‘’Very impressive. It is a hugely valuable resource for keeping up-to-date with developments in teaching phonics and other literacy matters.’’

I have no commercial connection with any literacy programme or educational product.
