'This is an excellent addition to the growing number of texts and resources that focus on supporting learners in FE and HE' - SENCO Update
With increasing numbers of students identified as dyslexic entering further and higher education, this is a very timely book.
It provides useful practical guidance for student support at individual, class and institutional level.
will be used in student workshops, very informative
also useful to underpin staff training
really helpful for staff teaching students with dyslexia, but also allows more recently diagnosed students to understand how to approach learning better for themselves.
valuable reading material which helps people to understand dyslexia in educational environments.
This book gives the reader the benefits of the extensive experience of the authors; thus enabling adaptive and supportive strategies that benefit both FE and HE students and tutors alike. Relevant case studies, policy, and research are used to provide the necessary understanding to promote dyslexia friendly education. This book is therefore recommended reading for anyone working within education.
My motivation for ordering this copy was to inform my role as Student Champion with the School of Health and Social care at Lincoln University rather than recommending directly to students. I will find this resource really useful when engaging with year one students, identifying their additional learning needs and thinking about useful strategies they might adopt.
Having said this there are a number of areas within this well written and informative book that I will be drawing to students attention, especially ladder reading and other techniques.
An outstanding read. Pavey, Meehan and Waugh nail down the key strands of focus for tutors in FE and HE whether your a practicing tutor or an accredited assessor.
I've recommended this text to learners across all educational programmes I deliver on.
This has useful focus on different sectors, identifying similarities and differences. Brings key issues to staff attention. Accessible style.
A very useful book that gives a broader view than just health related reflective books and articles. A logical and thorough view of professional reflection for practice.
Clearly written text which will help teachers support students with dyslexia
Extremely useful book for those working with students with SPLDs.
Very useful resource for all teachers in higher education in supporting the student with dyslexia.
Very comprehensive read, giving useful insights into how to offer additional support to students living with dyslexia. This book ought to be standard read for all lecturers at both FE and HE levels.
Easy to read, gives good guidance for anyone working with disabilities or developing their knowledge in this field. Found it an enjoyable read. Would recommend.
This book would be a valuable addition to many libraries, particularly those serving students training to work in the lifelong learning sector. But, beyond that, it is important to remember that a dyslexia-friendly learning environment will enhance the learning experience of all students, not just those with learning differences; this book deserves a wide readership.

Very well laid out and detailed for this growing area. Evidently a wealth of experience went into this helpful practitioner's handbook.
This book provided me with useful information as a teacher to help my learners.
As I have an increasing number of mature students with dyslexia I found this book very informative.
Really useful read for lecturers, I currently have 2 students with severe dyslexia, this book has some valuable tips of strategies to help tutor and learner.
