The Ministry of Education in Denmark is now introducing a new test to indentify dyslexia in early age. The test will be used from the 3rd grade in primary school. Until now there has been no common practice to identify this problem, which has created unnecessary barriers for pupils and students on their way through the educational system. The test is developed from international research. The Minister of Education Christine Antorini says that this will help to give all pupils and students more equal prerequisites to finish an education. Between 3-7% of the Danish people are dyslexics.
