Overview

Dyslexia cuts across class, age and intelligence. All schools will have pupils with dyslexia and teachers of children of all ages need to be aware of the teaching methods and approaches which are most effective with these children.

This fully revised and updated edition of a classic text offers invaluable advice to teachers on how they can recognize specific learning difficulties and give practical help to children in their classes. Written in clear, jargon-free language it provides guidelines on the way children with dyslexia learn language and achieve literacy and numeracy skills. It also includes chapters on handwriting, study skills and classroom management, whilst bearing in mind numerous demands made on classroom teachers.

This new edition includes:

* the National Literacy Strategy
* how to make effective use of Teaching Assistants
* an exploration of physical development
* commentary on teaching children with diagnosed dyspraxia and Attention Deficit Disorder.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Here is a book about dyslexia that needed to be written ... Every school staff-room should have a copy on the library shelf, and it should be required reading for all beginning teachers in the course of their training ... Highly recommended.' - Contact, the journal of the British Dyslexia Association

'This book is an invaluable resource for teachers who wish to enhance their understanding and knowledge, being full of highly accessible information and practical, workable suggestions...The content would also be very pertinent to parents, special needs teachers, teaching assistants or students.' -Sally Sinclair, Dyslexia Contact, September 2005
