The Prevalence of Dyslexia – Natalie Houalla

Natalie Houalla is a Senior Instructional Designer with Real Group and she is also the Chair of Governors as well as SEND and Inclusion Link Governor, for her local primary school. She is currently working towards an MA in Educational Neuroscience.
Here, Natalie explores the thorny issue of estimating the prevalence of dyslexia.

However, the original source of these statistics is difficult to trace.
