Overview

The Psychology of Dyslexia: A Handbook for Teachers with Case Studies by Michael Thomson

The Psychology of Dyslexia: A Handbook for Teachers Second Edition looks at are the description and definition of dyslexia and the assessment of dyslexia, as well as the history of the concept and current research findings. The book also includes reviews of both the neuro-psychology and the social aspects of dyslexia. In addition, aspects of cognitive psychology – in particular memory, phonological development and models of reading and spelling – and their relationship with dyslexia are covered.

New to this edition is a CD-ROM containing over 20 case studies which focus on, among other things, high- and low-ability dyslexics, severe dyslexia, simple spelling problems with high reading ability, ADHD and other neurodiversities and adults with dyslexia. The CD-ROM also includes commentary on helping dyslexics and a selection of phonic reading and spelling tests. 

The Psychology of Dyslexia: A Handbook for Teachers Second Edition is a superb introduction to the psychology of dyslexia for teachers.
