An academic at Durham University has said the term 'dyslexia' is unscientific and should be abandoned.
Professor Julian Elliott said many people do experience problems with reading, but that the diagnosis of dyslexia is used to describe too wide a range of problems.
In a book due to be released in March, researchers said the key task for teachers was to identify children struggling to read and intervene at a very early age, rather than spend time testing for a "questionable" diagnosis.
