100+ Ideas for Supporting Children with Dyslexia Reviews
'Gavin Reid and Shannon Green offer ideas to accommodate the broad spectrum of challenges encountered by dyslexic pupils. Busy teachers in all areas of the curriculum will appreciate the easily accessible format and achievable strategies and solutions. This title is an essential addition to the teacher's toolkit.' June Massey, Dyslexia teacher, trainer and assessor, UK '[This book] deserves to become a central feature in every staffroom. I would like to see it become dog-eared, highlighted, annotated and thoroughly well used! Ideally teachers and teaching assistants will develop their own activities based on the examples in each section and using the underlying 'dyslexia friendly' principles which are so clearly explained. Soon the school could have 1000 or more valuable ideas to share, tailored to their pupils and their curriculum - resources, what is more, which will benefit all pupils.' Rosie Wood, Speech and Language Therapist and Former Chief Executive of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre, UK
