Book Description

16 Nov 2006 041540925X 978-0415409254 New Ed

This ground-breaking book argues that spelling and writing need to be given more consideration in teaching and remedial settings especially if dyslexic pupils are to be helped back up to grade level, and other pupils are to make more effective, quicker progress. Helping teachers and student-teachers to understand the valuable contribution spelling and handwriting makes to literacy development in primary and secondary schools, this book shows them how to overcome existing barriers to learning. Chapters cover key topics such as:

  • the nature of spelling and the impact of the National Literacy Strategy
  • the strengths and weaknesses of existing schemes for handwriting
  • the definitions of dyslexia and how common spelling errors by dyslexics are made
  • making effective links between strategic assessment and strategic interventions in schools
  • problem-based learning, underpinned by plenty of casestudies and real life classroom examples.

Written by a well-known author in the field of literacy and dyslexia, this is a core text that will interest teachers, teacher educators, and undergraduate and postgraduate students in education and inclusion.

5.0 out of 5 stars practical and informative 23 Sep 2008
This is a really useful book for anyone concerned about the impact of dyslexia beyond reading. Dyslexia is seen a "reading problem" but in fact it affects all aspects of literacy. This book explains how and why it can limit a dyslexic child's ability to access the broader cuuriculum. This book summarises a wide range of academic research, reviews educational policies and explains many of the alternative interventions and programmes on offer to remediate dyslexia. I found it a great overview of the current situation and outlook for dyslexic children - I only hope a significant number of teachers and eduactional policy-makers read this book and do something! There is a great deal of confusion, myth, disinformation and "snake oil" on this topic. If your child has dyslexia, this book provides a sensible, informative and practical guide.
