Overview

The second edition of this practical book has been richly nourished by the experience of teachers and pupils using the first edition in the classroom. The authors have created new links between multisensory learning and the National Literacy Strategy and have applied these to the National Literacy Framework and the structure of the Literacy Hour.

Part one gives an informative account of the development of literacy skills and the barriers to learning for the dyslexic learner. Part two, "Skills in Action," provides a clear route to the development of Individual Education Plans, and will appeal to SENCOs and teachers and assistants working with the updated Code of Practice, providing additional support at the school level and for "School Action Plus." Part three, "The Step by Step Programme," details a systematic approach to learning letter sounds and high frequency words that can be used as part of a specialist program or within the Literacy Hour.
