Across Scotland, adult dyslexia tests are not free, which is acting as a barrier to many gaining or retaining employment.
Currently there are only free short tests available, which does not identify properly whether someone is dyslexic. Many adults, who were undiagnosed at school, can go on to struggle later in life without the proper support. I will put the case to the Scottish Government that no one should be held back as a result.
We must see free dyslexia/calculus tests for all ages and stages.
