Dyslexia Links

There are many sites on the internet offering advice about dyslexia or SpLD -Specific Learning Difficulties (dyslexia) as it is now being referred to. A word of warning though, while the information given may be sound, many sites are just offering a service, at a price. Any one of these solutions may or may not help you or your child as every child with dyslexia has their own unique combination of difficulties. Dyslexia is as individual as the person it affects!
