Book Description

29 April 2005 0340900199 978-0340900192
There is now a greater need than ever before to assess, record and respond appropriately to the special needs of individuals. Specialist teachers, SENCOs and learning support managers - all have a statutory duty to see that individual needs are identified, from the early years to further and higher education.

This book focuses on the purposes, principles and practicalities of assessing for dyslexia across successive age groups, exploring the changing assessment issues and specific assessment needs. It looks at the available types of assessments at each stage, explaining how to interpret results and how and when to involve other professionals. Throughout, special emphasis is placed upon the need to cooperate and communicate effectively with others - pupils/students, their parents, class teachers, administrators and fellow professionals - to ensure that appropriate intervention and follow-up support are forthcoming.

Assessments are needed to diagnose, to plan intervention, to inform school/college policies, to support claims for funding, to justify special arrangements in examinations, and more. These very different purposes require specialist teachers and support managers to have a firm grasp of relevant legislation and professional guidelines, to select appropriate assessments and provide reports that will meet their intended purpose.

Assessing for Dyslexia will enable you to achieve this! Down to earth, and with numerous examples, this book provides the practical guidance needed by specialist teachers and educational professionals in training, as well as by SENCOs and learning support staff working in schools and colleges.

Product Description


...I would have no difficulty recommending it to SENCOs or teachers wanting to get a better understanding of dyslexia and its assessment. It is a particularly good book for those who are following courses leading to qualifications in the field of dyselxia.

Book Description

Effectively the 'definitive guide' for the growing number of specialist teachers and special needs coordinators - from early years to FE/HE - who need to assess for dyslexia, and 'the book for the course' for all those following the OCR Specific Learning Difficulties training schemes.
