Back in May last year I wrote a post which asked whether dyslexia actually exists. Some people really liked it and others (particularly those with children who have been diagnosed with dyslexia) got pretty angry: it’s one of my most commented on posts.
With the imminent release of professor Julian Elliott’s new book, The Dyslexia Debate, a bit a media storm has blown up. Yesterday I was asked by BBC local radio to be interviewed on the Mark Forrest show and The Independent got in touch to see if I would write a short article summarising my thoughts. Naturally, being a big old show off I agreed to do both.

Here’s the link to my article. And here (for the next six days only) is the link to the radio debate. (My bit is about 50 minutes in.)
