Ofsted report on Special Needs

Having caused much media attention it is worth considering a different view. http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2010/sep/14/ofsted-special-needs-report-criticised.

I see many children as being diagnosed as “broken” when, in fact, those diagnosed with Dyslexia have often not been taught the 2 basic skills they need – to be able to visualise words and to keep them still. It isn’t the teachers’ fault because this is not part of their training, but every teacher can be taught these skills in a few hours. Implementing this in the classroom with help 1000s of children and only takes minutes. Get an article and free audio at www.dyslexiainschools.co.uk
