The Fish in the Tree Report shows the importance of teacher training in literacy and for those children with literacy difficulties, particularly dyslexia. This evidence shows that 84% of teachers told us that it was very important to be train in this area. However 35% of teachers spent less than a day of their courses on supporting children who struggle with literacy difficulties. Further just 18% were offered extra training on SEN, with 69% spending less than a day on dyslexia training.
