  • Margaret J. Snowling


There is no ‘quick fix’ or cure for dyslexia; it is a lifelong condition. Nevertheless, there are ways of helping to improve reading and spelling as well as ways to get around some of the problems that come with dyslexia. In addition, early intervention can set a child on to the right track to developing adequate literacy skills. ‘What works for dyslexia?’ discusses the importance of evidence-based approaches in order to provide advice as to what works.

It also considers what parents, schools, and employers can do to help.
