Dyslexia can cause a range of reading and learning problems
Schools in the Isle of Man are being offered government grants to help them support children with dyslexia.
The Department of Education is to help pay for schools to attain training for a Dyslexia Aware Quality Mark (DAQM).
Six schools every year will receive funding for training in the qualification, which can cost £1,300.
The benchmark means schools are trained to meet the needs of dyslexic learners through small adjustments to their teaching methods.
Joyce Monroe, an educational psychologist with the Manx Special Needs and Psychology Service, welcomed the funding.
She said the training would "further equip teachers to enable all young people to become successful learners".
"Five schools, Cronk-y-Berry, St Mary's, Murray's Road, Rushen and Willaston, have already benefited from this offer and it is hoped that more will follow suit now that the full funding is available," she added.
