Is our education system inclusive of dyslexic people?

Scientific Evidence Platform Needs more evidence Is our education system inclusive of dyslexic people?



Currently, our education system is not compatible with people with dyslexia since almost the entire learning process is done through written code.

In this way, the child with dyslexia finds it challenging to assimilate certain contents of certain subjects through this method. That is why from my point of view, I think it is essential to help children and detect dyslexia as soon as possible to be able to give them a series of weapons in the face of this conflict.


In the same way, an evolutionary change of our educational system would also be necessary to make it more inclusive, either through visual learning or auditory.

Currently, it’s estimated that between 5 and 10% of the world population has dyslexia, so it’s a problem that teachers in the classroom must know and know how to deal with. It is very important that teachers have the necessary tools to identify the features of this disorder and create educational alternatives that guarantee the inclusion and learning of the child in question in the educational system. Through teacher training that is more inclusive and aware of diversity, it will be possible to fight for the elimination of the barriers that cause part of the student body to be disadvantaged in the educational process.

However, although knowledge of dyslexia by teachers is very important, the demands of an educational system based mainly on mastery of literacy make the inclusion of dyslexic people very difficult. The educational response that is currently being given to this type of student is only a partial response, since to a great extent the problem lies in the structure of the educational system, since it requires complete mastery of reading and writing in all scopes. I believe that it is necessary to stimulate other areas and abilities, broaden our educational perspective and offer all students other ways of learning and working together. People are diverse and we learn in different ways, so we should offer an educational system to which everyone can adapt, promoting various skills that help people develop in different areas. The promotion of an education based basically on mastery of reading and writing causes exclusion and low self-esteem for people who cannot meet these expectations.
