no programs in half of sweden's municipalities

Limited support for dyslexic students

Half of Sweden’s municipalities lack action plans or directives for primary schools on how they should work with children with dyslexia, according to a survey from Demskop.

The polling institute asked 100 municipalities how they deal with children with reading and writing difficulties.

Writing in the newspaper Svenska Dagbladet Saturday morning, representatives from several organizations for the dyslexic say Stockholm, which has decided to withdraw support from students with dyslexia, declined to answer the survey.

Sweden’s highest profile sufferers from dyslexia are King Carl Gustaf and Crown Princess Victoria.
