This book is a very valuable resource for a wide range of professionals (including student teachers and teachers) to better address the needs of pupils with dyslexia, including those in the Early Years. The authors give a very detailed examination of dyslexia and the wider issues affecting the pupil, the family and society. Policies influencing the education of dyslexic pupils are discussed, as are major relevant issues such as poverty.
I work with both undergraduates and postgraduates and would be very keen to use this highly accessible book within each of the courses. In Wales, of course, the comments on the statutory framework with Early Years would need to be set in the context of our Framework for the Foundation Phase but the sense of the content and the focus on dyslexia would be appropriate to the early years of teaching and learning, regardless of the differing contexts.
This is a very accessible text that engages the reader in a child centered and holistic issues and approached. It is full of valuable information that professionals (both in preparation and more experienced) will find helpful as they meet the needs of this group of learners in inclusive settings. The literacy focus is particularly important and contributes to our goal of raised standards and high expectations for learners with dyslexia.
This is a very important book which offers a refreshingly honest account of the current challenges facing children with dyslexia and developmental literacy difficulties. It acknowledges the conceptual confusion which continues to surround this area, but rightly places an emphasis on understanding the holistic needs of the child in a changing familial and cultural context, and of seeking to meet those needs in a child-friendly, rights-respecting manner. In so doing practitioners are encouraged to appreciate and address the potentially significant emotional impact of dyslexia and literacy d
This is a well-written book that focuses on early years and the primary sector and provides much information and guidance as well as raising important issues about how dyslexia can be reframed in the 21st Century.
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.
Good supplement for teacher trainees and practising teachers. This book covers information about dyslexia and how it affects individuals and their studies. Most importantly this book provides lots of helpful examples and strategies to include in your own practice.
This is a potentially complex set of ideas for students to access, this text manages to be accessible and through
This book clearly provides vital information about dyslexia, literacy and Inclusion. It captured to a great extent knowledge and understanding individuals will need to develop to be able to support children with dyslexia in a range of childcare provisions.
this book has been effective to support students to develop and enhance their knowledge in this subject area.
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.
This book provides a comprehensive discussion of the impact of dyslexia on the individual and will help practitioners at all levels to support learners.
The book content fits well with the concept and content of our Specialist Teacher Module
A useful book that looks to contemporary challenges including the training of teachers within school rather than in HEIs. A big problem in getting the right training in this economic environment.
This text realy brings the subject of dyslexia up to date.
It links the topic to latest legal and policy developments and considers support for children with dyslexia within the wider themes of inclusive education, in particular child-centered planning.
I will have no hesitation in recommending this text to my students
ideal for FdA students
