Dyslexia Support Group call for further teacher training in election wish-list

The Dyslexia Support Group is calling for the future incoming Government to provide further dyslexia training for teaching staff in schools.

The Support Group has published its wish list ahead of the general election.

It is calling for greater support for people who are in employment or seeking it, as well as making different types of employment accessible using apprenticeships or similar schemes.

Another of the priorities for the group is that Gibraltar works towards making our schools more dyslexia friendly with the aim of securing the British Dyslexia Association's Quality mark.

With the Chief Minister having signed the Made by Dyslexia Pledge to make Gibraltar more Dyslexia friendly, the Support Group wants a commitment to ensure this is achieved across all Government departments.
