Dyslexia.

My ten-year old son is dyslexic and finds it very hard to read and write. What will happen to him in the future in the present education system?

Your son will have a normal education, but with more support than most children. Your role in this is very important, make sure you give him all the love and encouragement you can and keep your doctor abreast of any developments. Once he has had an examination, your doctor will probably send him to an education specialist or speech therapist for regular sessions.
He shoul be up to the same level as most children his age before long, with this extra support. Read as much as you can at home and make it an enjoyable activity that he associates with relaxation, by reading at bedtime together. Choose books and stories about things that he is interested in.
Don't worry too much, he will undoubtedly be talented in another area, maybe very creative or artistic. Many well-known writers and philosophers are dyslexic, so he is in good company!
