5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a book written for those who need help with spelling that they can use themselves., 23 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chambers Adult Learners' Guide to Spelling (Paperback)
All too often, books that are written to help with spelling problems are written for the teacher, in teaching jargon, and not the student who needs help.

This book is written in a dyslexia - friendly style,and endorsed by the British Dyslexia Association. It is full of helpful suggestions and plenty of tried and tested strategies for improving spelling. It contains a colour coded section on a four-week programme for improving skills. There are activities (with answers) a useful Glossary, a list of difficult words and a dyslexia screening checklist.

Tutors looking for inspiration for creating new worksheets for their students will find plenty here, whilst the student who is trying to use the book as part of a self-help programme will find the book clear and easy to use. The author has a depth of experience as a literacy tutor, specialising in dyslexia and her knowledge shows.As a fellow tutor, I cannot praise this book highly enough - a most valuable and overdue addition.
