My daughter told me that when she did a dyslexia examination, the teacher told her not to write too much so that she could get extra time in her exams! Told her to cheat! I was rather shocked. This demeans the children who really do have dyslexia and seems to me to be all about money, as some schools get extra for kids with dyslexia. What do you think?

    Wow that really is shocking. 1 it's wrong to cheat(!), 2 if they were found to be dyslexic (falsely) they may have to disclose it on all future job applications etc, and 3, you're right, it demeans the disorder. Just for the sake of a few extra minutes in an exam! Are you maiking a complaint?

    I have already complained to the school about a variety of different things and with this as well...I'm also going to inform the LEA. I'm sure this is to do with money. My daughter has been put in lower sets; the most she can get is a C and so she doesn't bother! How bad is that?!
