It was reported in the newspaper that Beyhan Savaşçıoğlu, a 1st year pupil at one of the leading primary schools in İstanbul was sent to the MEB Counselling Research Centre because she couldn’t read and write.After doing tests, including an IQ test, it was discovered that she was of above average intelligence and had dyslexia.

We know that in every school all over Turkey there will be other pupils like Beyhan.There are many children, just like her, who are of normal or above intelligence with learning difficulties.Due to Turkey’s general education problems, many teachers and parents know nothing about dyslexia. For this reason, many children suffer in their school life.
