Book Description

Mar 2006 1903776686 978-1903776681
The word dyslexia has a Greek origin, 'dys-' meaning difficulty and '-lexia' meaning words or language. Dyslexia is not just a reading or spelling problem; it's a difficulty with language - reading, writing, speaking, spelling and information processing. It can, in turn, lead to social problems. This pocketbook is a practical guide to helping dyslexic students overcome their learning barriers and unlock their potential. Aimed at teachers in primary and secondary schools in the UK, this extensively illustrated book is equally relevant to those working overseas. It provides: an outline of what dyslexia is and ways to recognise 'at risk of dyslexia' signs; information about learning profiles of dyslexic students; suggested solutions and practical techniques; and ways to improve the performance of dyslexic students and pointers to further resources. Following an opening chapter, What is Dyslexia? the book moves on to consider how multisensory learning can benefit students with dyslexia. Practical tools and techniques are provided for reading, handwriting, spelling, maths, speaking & listening, music, study skills and organisation. Raising self-esteem and using the 6 'Ls' for written and verbal communication (legibility, layout, language, links, large picture/little chunks, let it settle & look again) are given chapters of their own as are the many different theories and practices currently in use, from Auditory Integration Training, the Davis approach and DDAT centres, to programmes of learning such as Alpha to Omega and Units of Sound. "The Dyslexia Pocketbook" is part of the "Teachers' Pocketbooks Series", an imprint of Management Pocketbooks Ltd and winners of the 2005 Education Resources Awards. The concise, practical guides are written by experienced teachers and packed with information, advice, ideas and strategies for primary and secondary teachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have book 28 Nov 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for both educators and parents. It takes a holistic picture of the child and how different learning environments and the challenges within these environments can affect the child, how crucial their self-belief is as an integral part of being able to cope, adapt and learn.

It offers practical ways for teachers to create the best learning opportunities and strategies for the child , it is set out in such a way that it can be a quick reference - and reminder for teachers of what learning life is like for children with dyslexia.
I highly reccommend it and hope that she will write one specifically for parents too.
