In North Ayrshire we are committed to raising attainment for all, through high quality learning and teaching approaches and that offer the right support at the right time for those in need. This involves establishing a consistent approach in identifying and supporting dyslexia and literacy difficulties.
The following policy is intended to support and develop a consistent approach across all North Ayrshire establishments in line with National Guidance on Inclusive Practice. Whilst this policy provides a definition of dyslexia it also recognises that a focus on effective learning and teaching for all is paramount. The prime focus should be on meeting needs, whether dyslexia has been identified or not (Rose review, 2009).
