Call for more support for children with dyslexia

Petition garners hundreds of signatures

Improving the support in education for children with dyslexia - that's the aim of a new petition set to go before Tynwald.

Julia Furner, whose daughter is dyslexic, hopes to raise the profile of the condition in a positive light.

The petition has garnered more than four hundred signatures since it began last Friday (7 February).

Julia told Rhian Evans more:

Julia is creating an appendix of local stories from those who are directly affected by dyslexia.

If you would like to get in touch, email Juliafurner2017@gmail.com.
