No problem. The UK made respect and support for dyslexic people a legal duty for schools and other institutes under the Disability Discrimination Act 1995. The act says that schools and other institutions cannot discriminate against people who suffer dyslexia. In addition, they also have the duty to identify the condition and provide proper support. In England and Wales, students in Higher education who have dyslexia can receive support through the Disabled Students Allowance if their schools fail to provide help. The students will also have more time in exams. The UK also has organizations that aim to create a dyslexia-friendly environment. Northern Ireland has the Northern Ireland Dyslexia Association. Scotland has the Dyslexia Scotland.   Keyword: dyslexia uk
