Keynote speaker; Professor Jonathan Glazzard, Leeds Beckett University. The Impact of Dyslexia on Students’ Sense of Self. He tells the story of a School inspection sunk by Headteacher fighting for 4 Dyslexics. How a school inspection felt like from a head teachers perspective. Half of his students had strong dyslexic traits. It was unusual. The head teacher had a hard choice that echoes what a lot of parents feel. He goes onto share his study on the “Phonics reading Check” in UK. And the results of his research interviews with dyslexic teens and teachers. The most unexpected is how helpful children find the label ‘dyslexia’.
