ADDITIONAL NEEDS TEACHING DYSLEXIC LEARNERS. This page is introduced and overseen by Dr Margaret Crombie, formerly Support for Learning Manager and Quality Improvement Officer for Highland Council, Scotland; now Educational Consultant specialising in Dyslexia, and Associate Lecturer for the Open University. The International Dyslexia Association prepared this fact sheet describing reasonable accommodations involving materials, interactive instruction, and student performance to will help children with learning problems in general education and special education classrooms. I am a writer and sociologist. I was originally from Somerset but have spent most of my life in Wales. My first encounter with a mental health professional was in 1984 when I was a student in Bangor, Gwynedd.
