Supporting Children with Dyslexia Reviews


An enterprising and user-friendly book that will be well received by its intended audience - classroom teachers in mainstream schools and SENCOs. This book supports, and in some cases (the Lone Rangers) will supplant, an awareness-level course in dyslexia. It guides the reader through current and changing systems and practices in the maintained sector, and succeeds in its primary aim to provide practical resources for support and intervention. Tables, diagrams, case studies and call-out boxes pop up, oasis-like, to offer regular refreshment. Martin Turner, Chartered Educational Psychologist
Article by Sally McKeown - mentions book. SEN Magazine
"ideal for the classroom teacher who wants to make sure that he or she is up to date on the subject but does not have time to read a lengthy tome." "appealing to look at and easy to read, the text being broken up by boxes, charts and illustrations that add clarity." "a very good read for classroom teachers and teaching assistants." Mary Kelly, The British Journal of Special Education Support for Learning, Vol.34, No.2, 2007--Sanford Lakoff
