I contributed to the British Dyslexia Association's 'Dyslexia Friendly Schools Good Practice Guide' 2nd Edition with my article about working in collaboration with schools to gain support for one's dyslexic child.  So often the interaction can be very 'them and us' when it should be a joint effort to support the child between parent and school.
