Tom Hunt recently visited an Ipswich primary school to discuss supporting children with dyslexia.
In December, West Suffolk MP Matt Hancock introduced a bill for a universal screening campaign.
Mr Hunt, who strongly backs this campaign, visited Clifford Road Primary and Nursery, which has a dedicated teaching assistant to help dyslexic pupils.
He said: "Schools should not be financially penalised for doing what is in the best interests of the children.
"Making sure pupils with special educational needs and disabilities get the right provision is one of my driving passions and one of my main priorities on the Education Committee.
"Visiting schools like Clifford Road is a great opportunity to see exactly how this provision works in the classroom, and how the Department for Education can better support every pupil."
