Are there any trainee teachers out there who are dyslexic? I'm posting on behalf of my husband who is hoping to begin a PGCE next year, but he's worried about the skills tests as he is dyslexic and would find the spelling element in particular very difficult to do correctly, especially with limited time. He is also unsure whether training providers make any allowances for dyslexic trainees or offer any support. Can anyone tell us about their experiences? As a teacher myself, I think it'd be ludicrous if dyslexic people were not able to train as teachers, but we really don't know what the situation is so we'd appreciate it if anyone can give us any info.
