§ 15. Dr. Goodson-Wickes
To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Science what programmes are being considered to help pupils suffering from dyslexia.
§ Mr. Fallon
It is for local education authorities to make suitable provision for dyslexic pupils. The Government have also invested £250,000 to research how information technology and its software can assist dyslexic pupils, in a project based at the Harris CTC. My right hon. and learned Friend has also asked the Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education to report on how trainee teachers are taught to identify and help dyslexic pupils.
