The aim of project was to set up a school network for teachers to have a platform for an interactive exchange of ideas, resources, services, and expertise among different schools that mutually address the needs of children with dyslexia. Five primary schools were invited to participate in this scheme. Teachers of each school were requested to identify an area of concern in reading or writing and to develop a 10-week instructional programme. A 5-day cross-site visitation was held. Individual interviews were conducted for teachers. It was found that teachers of member schools benefitted from the experience sharing among schools.
