Situation

To ensure adequate resources are available in the Welsh language to meet the needs of dyslexic children and young people, --who receive Welsh medium education only until they are 7 years of age, and then have both Welsh and English from 7 onwards.

Solution

There are limited Welsh teaching and learning resources at present--whether they be I T based, in paper format, or available in courses and tutoring sessions at home. There is plenty of English language material and to translate these into Welsh will not address the issue, because of the phonic structure of the Welsh language, and the fact that Wales has a completely different alphabet and graphemes (sounds of letters).
