Reading University

We delivered a talk at Reading University with Professor Rhona Stainthorpe; she presented information on the research she has done in reading and we presented information on how the specialist practitioner supports children with dyslexia.

Unicorn children have been involved in research that Reading University has done at The Unicorn School on the efficacy of Dyslexia Font. We are awaiting their findings and will keep you updated as soon as we know them.
