It comes up time and time again on my Facebook "Dyslexia Mums Support Group U.K". Parents, careers asking how to get teachers, school to help their dyslexic child. Many feel that their child is not getting the right help and don't know how to get it.

Advice about how to speak to teachers, to get the right support for your child.
The Mooki Cards contain a “My Learning Plan" card. Learn what an "Educational Learning Plan" should include. Use the card below on your phone or tablet for free!
