Meet Harry. Harry likes to play football, climb trees, and hang out with friends, but Harry doesn’t like reading. That is until his teacher explains that Harry has dyslexia, which makes things like reading and writing particularly hard for him – and with help from his mum, teacher and an educational psychologist, Harry learns specific strategies for reading with dyslexia.
