Motion text

That this House would welcome a positive programme by the Department of Education and Science to see that within five years all teacher training colleges have facilities to train future teachers in the methods of speedily identifying dyslexia, and that all existing teachers will have available to them courses for the identification and special teaching required for children suffering from dyslexia, and that the Schools Inspectorate should be asked to specifically report in 1992 upon the facilities available for teaching dyslexic children in each education authority compared with what is required to see that the talents of the children involved are developed fully.
