It was great to meet today with ‘A Dyslexic Life’ campaigners Donna Macleod and Donna Inglis who are doing great work in raising issues around dyslexia and how children with reading difficulties need more support.

An amazing statistic they shared with me was that half of the prisoners in jail have a reading age of under 11. Therefore, spending money to help people with dyslexia deal with reading could save some people a lot of trouble in adult life and the country great expense.
