Sadly, dyslexia has always attracted all manner of snake oil prescriptions. Even those with limited knowledge of this disability know that it is highly complex and requires multi-level assessment and programmes.
What I deplore is the closure of special schools and units, under pressure from the "full inclusion" lobby. Ordinary class teachers cannot be expected to cope not only with dyslexia but even more disruptive disabilities.
While expertise is eroded away in the public sector all manner of bizarre theories and private provision will thrive.
