The Little Book of Dyslexia written by a dyslexic student teacher, references both personal experience and current research findings to highlight issues faced by people of all ages with dyslexia.
It looks at a number of strategies that can be used both inside and outside the classroom as well as listing various resources all designed to create a learning environment that helps – not hinders – the dyslexic learner. The book works through the various challenges faced at different ages, starting with the youngest, including some of the early indications of dyslexia and moves up through primary and secondary school and finally onto university and being a student teacher.
“This is a must-read for anyone who has met dyslexia – in their own approach to learning or in a child or children they know.”
Roger Pask, Education Leadership and Management Consultant, Facilitator and Coach
“This book will appeal to trainee teachers, newly qualified teachers and practitioners across all phases of education. It will also prove to be a practical guide for all parents on how to
cope with a child who has dyslexia.”
Debbie Coslett, Chief Executive Officer, The Hayesbrook School Academy Trust
“Any parent of a child diagnosed with dyslexia would find this book excellent in that it is written by someone who really knows how that diagnosis impacts on a child’s life.”
Andrew Massey, Fox In The Box Consulting Ltd
“This is a gem of a book that will be useful for working with all pupils and students. It is packed with common sense strategies and insights that will make learning fun and productive.”
