Completed petition Welsh should not be compulsory for children with dyslexia and special needs

Like many other children in the UK my son is dyslexic. English writing and reading is an everyday challenge so imagine having to learn to read and write another language that you will never use. This is what living in Wales my son has to do every day. I have tried to remove him from Welsh so he can have extra English lessons but it is a legal obligation for the school to teach Welsh in Wales. It's an everyday challenge for dyslexic children living in Wales. Welsh should be a choice for children with dyslexia and special needs, not compulsory.
