Students with Dyslexia the Focus of New documentary:

With an estimated one in 10 students in Australia living with dyslexia, a new documentary film is being produced to raise awareness and support students with this learning difficulty. The idea for the documentary was born out of the dyslexia pllicty roundtable hosted by Minister for Education and Training in June last year.

“Outside the Square will highlight the learning needs of children with dyslexia and include information on evidence-based learning strategies currently in use in some schools which are assisting children with dyslexia and other learning difficulties plus feature leading Australian advocates focused on improving outcomes for students,” Mr Pyne said.
