Alexandria achieved higher levels in her SATs tests thanks to one-to-one tutoring with Dyslexia Action. Alex, 11, from Coalpit Heath, is not severely dyslexic but her Mum realised something was wrong when she noticed a difference in her reading ability, compared to her older siblings when they were her age.
