In response to the recent publication 'The Dyslexia Debate' by Professors Elliot and Grigorenko, which challenges the need for the term dyslexia, Dr John Rack and Sir Jim Rose detail in a letter why they believe the term dyslexia needs to stay. This letter is supported by all members of The Dyslexia-SpLD Trust.
