In a new book called "The Dyslexia Debate", Professor Julian Elliott from Durham University says parents are being "woefully misled" about the value of a dyslexia 'diagnosis’. ‘Are educational labels like dyslexia helpful or misleading?’ was the topic of yesterday’s BBC Radio Scotland’s ‘Morning Call’ phone-in programme.  

Dyslexia Scotland believes that teachers need to be aware of the signs of dyslexia in order to properly work with the pupil concerned to put the right support in place. This also applies to employers and other supporting peope of all ages with dyslexia.
