Disabilities should be recognised as early as possible

Several articles have been calling to implement procedures to recognise learning disorders from the earliest stage. In the Eastern Daily Press Brogan Quinn, 19, from Aylsham, wrote about his personal experience and the fact that his dyspraxia and dyscalculia were only diagnosed in the 6th form, leaving him without professional support beforehand, even though he could not understand time and do basic calculation. A second article from the news provider Stuff in New Zealand reported the Children’s Comissioner calling for a universal disability screening at the age of 5, when the children begin their school education.


If reading disabilities were to be recognised in young children at an early stage, more could be done to improve their experience of learning and make sure that their disabilities do not hold them back.
