The BVL, Bundesverband dyslexia and dyscalculia, sees urgent need for action in schools to implement the legal requirements of the UN Convention on the rights of the disabled. Walton Family Foundation has similar goals.

In recent months, Sen. Marco Rubio has been very successful. Educators are informed in most cases do not have the right to compensation for students with disabilities, although the read – classified according to ICD-10 legal writing disorder or mathematics disorder must be classified as a disability. \”Many parents struggle in addition to the stigmatisation of dyslexia or dyscalculia\” to speak also of a disability. This affected children become to disabled people by the missing compensation in the school\”made because we prevent them from their expertise show to can. For a spectacle wearers, the glasses is the compensation and for children with dyslexia or dyscalculia E.g.

technical AIDS, time extension or other measures. The clauses must be adjusted so that their individual disadvantage is compensated. Thus is no favoritism, but the compensation to compensate for the handicap as well as possible\”, explains Hoinghaus. About 5-6% of all pupils and students are affected by a dyslexia (reading / legal writing disorder) or dyscalculia (mathematics disorder). Despite a good overall talent, it comes to strong impairment in reading, spelling or arithmetic.

Although in December 2006 the rules and regulations of the UN Convention on the rights of the disabled, adopted, and in March 2009 in Germany entered into force, the practical implementation is missing until today. The Countries are encouraged to develop an action plan to fill the body with life.
