Learning support should continue after secondary school

The learning support system throughout our primary and secondary schools is well established, ensuring those requiring additional help get it. Once secondary comes to an end however, these individuals are suddenly left with minimum or completely without support that they may require to get through college.

Maurice Corry MSP (Conservative - West of Scotland) said "I am starting a campaign to raise awareness of this issue and encourage cross party support. People with ADHC, dyslexia etc should not be disadvantaged in continuing their studies and it is incredibly important that the support is there when needed.

"As a nation we have many successful individuals with these difficulties, Jackie Stewart as a local example, who is also championing the support for people with dyslexia and other learning difficulties.

"We need to ensure our young people do not feel abandoned upon leaving secondary school, and they have the support required to allow them to progress into whatever field they desire. These individuals are missing out on opportunities through no fault of their own.

"I am working on this through the cross party group for dyslexia and will continue to do so."
