Product Description

Review

'[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

Product Description

This practical guide provides anyone supporting children and young people with dyslexia with more than 100 great ideas for reinforcing their learning development.

This second edition is up-to-date with the latest research and best practice on dyslexia, and includes a brand new section on differentiation in the classroom. There are also lots of additional ideas on topics including:

• emotional literacy
• peer support
• periods of transition in the child’s school life
• developing phonic skills; and
• exam preparation

This book of ready-to-use activities and strategies is perfect for the non-specialist teacher in need of extra guidance, but will also offer new ideas and insights to SENCOs, head teachers, parents and carers and anyone else working with a child or young person with dyslexia.

Although this book is aimed primarily at teaching staff, I purchased it for my daughter's use so that she could help my 8 year-old grand-daughter, whose degree of dyslexia had not been fully appreciated by her school, due to her above average performance both vocally and in computer and drawing skills. She was having huge problems copying work from the blackboard into her exercise books and was embarrassed by her slowness. This little book is very easy to read and follow by parents and teachers alike and is full of excellent ideas which are cheap and simple to implement. It will help parents to voice their concerns to teaching staff, not only for the benefit of the individual child but also to enhance dyslexia awareness throughout the school. Well-worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book!!!! 19 Jan 2014
By OrganicGreen VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is wonderful. My son 10 has dyslexia & adhd. By using Toe by Toe (book) and plenty of effort at home and at school his reading is coming along well. His reading is progressing. His writing has progressed to the stage where he can write and touch type but he stares at a blank page or screen not knowing what to write. At school and home we scribe a story plan for him; but still when left with his plan he still can't think of what to write. I have bought this book will give me simple and easy ways to allow my son to be able to think of sentences to write. I have only read the section about writing, but already I am filled with excitement as the exercises are fun, clear and easy to do with my son. My son has made such progress with his learning and being able to write (he can write he just does not know what to write) will be the last major dyslexic hurdle to get over. We have used Nessy Fingers to learn to touch type. Vocab Kids app to build his vocabulary while paying. My hope is that this book will help me with my son to open his mind so he can write stories and reports on any subject with confidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars teaching dyslexic students 6 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is great because it actually gives you some tools to use in your teaching. My problem has been, that I've gathered lots of knowledge on dyslexia, but I still missed the tools. Now I have lots!
I highly recommend this book to all teachers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 22 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Some of the ideas were repetitive and wordy and are used anyway in a good classroom. I was expecting something more innovative.
