Ideal for teachers, students on education-based courses and educational psychologists, this new, up-to-date edition of Gavin Reid’s bestselling handbook is a vital accompaniment to practice and research in the areas of dyslexia and literacy.

The fourth edition of Dyslexia: A Practitioner’s Handbook incorporates the most recent theoretical and practical research in the dyslexia and literacy field. While placing an emphasis on inclusion and meeting the needs of all within the mainstream system, the book also looks at best practice in specialized provision, focusing in particular on individualized approaches.

Chapters examine primary, secondary and adult education, as well as the role of parents. These are complemented by a new chapter on pre-school practice. Other new chapters identify the issues facing teachers and offer practical and insightful advice as to how these might be approached and handled in the context of new research findings. New features include content summaries at the start of each chapter and Points for Reflection at the conclusion of each chapter. The appendices include tests for use by teachers as well as an extensive list of up-to-date contact details for various dyslexia and literacy organizations.
