Action Research for Dyslexic Pupils: Parents as Full Partners

  • Colin Tyre

Abstract

The interest and controversy aroused by the parents of dyslexic children and public concern about standards of literacy have focussed attention upon the need for more research into a process we take almost for granted as a natural human attribute. There has been, too, a demand for more effective measures to identify and meet the needs of children as early as possible. But at national and local levels, some parents are still unconvinced that those responsible for the administration of education have the will, expertise and resources to help their children, and are driven to seek help in the clinics and units they are helping to finance through their voluntary efforts.
