This book is about raising standards in literacy for children with dyslexia by putting the child at the centre of everything you do, focusing on wellbeing, and recognising the role that adults have to play in ensuring all children reach their potential. Concentrating on children in primary schools and early years settings the book looks at:
- Early intervention
- Pupil voice
- Working as a team
- New literacies
- Child-centred identification, assessment and provision
- Challenges for the inclusive school.
Suitable for all those working with children with dyslexia this book contains strategies that can be easily adopted to academically and emotionally benefit the children you are working with.
This text is essential to all early years practitioners. It highlights the difficulties and challenges faced in relation to a child's development whilst offering the practitioners a deeper understanding.
Excellent, informative text for students and parents exploring or researching inclusion.
Interesting perspectives on some of the key issues, especially the way in which a child's background affects learning.

opens new perspectives on the topic
A really useful book for my Early Years students as there are various strategies and methods which are child centred. The exercises and weblinks are also useful and the case studies provide good examples.
I will recommend this book for my Foundation Degree in Educational Support students. It provides much more than an understanding of dyslexia as the focus is on the needs of children and real practical strategies, informed by research, which my working students (TAs) will find extremely useful both in their own practice and in their coursework. The combination of literacy development and inclusion makes the book adaptable to other inclusive contexts too. There are clear, well-presented examples. The only additions I would make are some visual pictures and tables which would reinforce the book's own message of accessibility and this seems to be a surprising omission in a book about dyslexia.
