'Welsh dyslexia services needed'.

AN Assembly inquiry is critical of the lack of services in Welsh for people who suffer from dyslexia.

A report by a cross party committee of AMs said there is still room for improvement in dyslexia services across Wales.

It found excellent work in some areas but calls for the Welsh Assembly Government to ensure that all local authorities maintain the same high standards.

The committee was concerned at the lack of screening and assessing children for dyslexia through the Welsh language.

Chair and Aberconwy AM Gareth Jones said: "The Welsh Government should focus on ensuring that early identification of, and support for, people with dyslexia is available in both the English and Welsh languages."

The British Dyslexia Association wanted every local authority to be 'Dyslexia Friendly' by 2012.
