This related video replaces the original until this can be resolved. Dispatches exposes the myths and misconceptions that surround a condition said to affect 10 percent of the population. The Dyslexia Myth argues that the common understanding of dyslexia is not only false but makes it more difficult to provide the reading help that hundreds of thousands of children desperately need.

Based on years of intensive academic research on both sides of the Atlantic, Offices challenges the existence of dyslexia as a separate disorder, but in doing so, highlights the magnitude and pain of true reading disability.

The program examines the chasm between the practice of testing and education and shows that, after hundreds of millions of pounds of investment in teaching reading, the number of children facing serious problems has hardly changed.
