Specialist dyslexic/dyscalculia schools?

Are there any senior schools specialising in help with dyslexia and dyscalculia - Google isn't proving very helpful at the moment. We are looking to move my 14 year old son who is not coping in his current mainstream school.

Thank you for any advice.

Have a look at www.crested.org.uk

Weirdly the link doesn't seem to work, but search up CRESTED and dyslexia and there is plenty of info on schools

There is a brilliant book for Sen schools by gabitas. Buy it on Amazon. My son has dyscalculia. He went to a specialist independent school ( no longer exists) that enabled him to go to uni as he got his gcse in maths. He has just got a first in his degree. If you intend to get it funded by LEA it will be a battle but so worth it.
