New standardized test in the UK

Submission from a concerned parent in the U.K.: students will be taking a new standardized test that requires students to spot adverbs, nouns, adjectives and pronouns and to spell frequently misspelled words. “This new test will mean that children are again taught the skills they need to understand our language, and to use it properly, creatively and effectively.” How do you think this will affect students with dyslexia?
