This is the 2nd part of our talk with Moira Thomson, MBE. In this episode, she talked about accommodations. Is it really worth it to have young people have adjustments to the arrangements? Is it not considered cheating to give one child extra time in the exams where others don't? She also talks about the misidentification of dyslexia as a child and how Scotland is ahead in terms of dealing with dyslexia.
