Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty that hinders the learning of literacy skills. This problem with managing verbal codes in memory is neurologically based and tends to run in families. Other symbolic systems, such as mathematics and musical notation, can also be affected. Dyslexia can occur at any level of intellectual ability. It can accompany, but is not a result of, lack of motivation, emotional disturbance, sensory impairment or meagre opportunities. The effects of dyslexia can be alleviated by skilled specialist teaching and committed learning. Moreover many dyslexic people have visual and spatial abilities which enable them to be successful in a wide range of careers. The appearance of this book .. is to be welcomed. It represents a full statement of the best practice to be found in the many kinds of intervention that are conducted with dyslexic students. It addresses some fundamental questions that are seldom asked and much of what the skilled teacher knows and does is set down here in print for the first time. From the Preface: `Collectively, the chapters provide a synthesis of current practice focusing on how to assess and treat the symptoms of dyslexia, guided by a proper understanding of the cognitive and linguistic weaknesses that underpin the condition. The book makes clear that the backbone of intervention for dyslexia is a highly structured multisensory approach that teaches reading and spelling skills at the appropriate rate. However, it is also explicit in pointing out that such a programme must be delivered with due attention to individual differences in the other cognitive skills that contribute to literacy development, and take account of the learner's style, interests and not least their confidence and self-esteem. This book provides an important resource for teachers who wish to become competent in the skills required for the assessment, teaching, supporting and counselling of dyslexic people in a variety of settings. It promises to reach many teachers and in turn, their students and families'. Margaret J. Snowling, University of York, UK

Research has shown that early identification and intervention is crucial and can in fact minimise, and may even prevent, the challenges of dyslexia from becoming too detrimental at later stages of education. This book offers both research insights and practical guidance for teachers working in Early Years settings on how to create resource materials that would be suitable for the development of children with dyslexia. Beginning with a contextual note on the key difficulties faced by children at risk of dyslexia, the book takes the reader through the processes of identification and diagnosis, before offering ideas on how to tailor classroom materials for these students. The book's resource materials are designed to target areas such as reading, spelling, numeracy, language skills, social and emotional development, and problem solving skills.

This is the 2001 volume in the series emanating from successive International Conferences organised by the British Dyslexia Association. Considerable progress has been made in identifying the causes of dyslexia and providing intervention to break into the cycle of failure. This selection of papers, from the 5th International Conference of the British Dyslexia Association in 2001, brings together perspectives on aspects of theory and practice. A key feature is the inclusion of a series of chapters on good practice from infancy to adulthood, in addition to themes on biological bases, cognitive processes and intervention. The research reported covers all the major theories of dyslexia and reflects state-of-the-art knowledge in developing areas such as genetics and infancy research. Authors include not only keynote speakers Maryanne Wolf, Joe Torgesen and John Stein, but also many other major international players. A particular highlight is the call from Rod Nicolson to consider targets for dyslexia research for the next decade, in terms of unity of purpose.

Taking a developmental approach, this accessible text addresses the ever increasing interest in identifying the characteristics of dyslexia in young children and reflects on the best way to reach and support these learners. Drawing upon current research, the author considers our current understanding of dyslexia and calls upon best practice to advise professionals, students and family members alike who seek to fulfil the potential of young children with, or showing the signs of, dyslexia. This book considers key topics explored in current best practice and dyslexia research, including: the importance of the role of speaking, hearing and understanding language dyslexia in relation to other languages and orthographies dyslexia and overlapping characteristics, particularly dyspraxia the role of play identifying and assessing dyslexia in the early years. Adopting a dyslexia-friendly position, Barbara Pavey acknowledges the ethics associated with a social model of disability, so that the focus is upon modifying teaching and learning, and respecting the views of children and parents throughout. This book includes assessment and practice strategies, good practice points, helpful ideas, first-hand narratives of dyslexia, pointers for further reading, resources and online tools, and will be of enormous practical use to anyone supporting a young child with potential or diagnosed dyslexia.

This book reinforces the need for understanding and support for children with dyslexia from parents and teachers, but also the importance of the children's own understanding of their strengths and weaknesses in order to fulfil their potential. It should be recommended reading for all those involved in dyslexia. - Professor Angela Fawcett, Director of the Centre for Child Research, Swansea University What is it like living with dyslexia on a day-to-day basis? Based on interviews with dyslexic children and their families, this insightful book presents first-hand accounts of how dyslexia affects the children themselves and the people around them. Living with Dyslexia, Second Edition places the original fascinating findings within the context of current research and practice in the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA. The author: examines issues of confidence and self-esteem; explores the coping strategies adopted by children and adults with dyslexia; investigates the concept of dyslexia-friendly schools; studies how children were first identified as having dyslexia, and the social and emotional difficulties they encountered; offers guidance on how teachers and parents can best support children with specific learning difficulties; considers the cognitive, educational, social and emotional perspectives in order for teachers and parents to gain a better understanding of dyslexia. This new edition provides an updated account of cognitive research and examines important changes in relation to Special Educational Needs policy and practice in the last ten years, including the Revised SEN Code of Practice (2001), Removing Barriers to Achievement (2004) and the National Literacy Strategy (2006). Living with Dyslexia recognises that the voices of children with dyslexia are increasingly important in developing good educational practice and makes an important contribution to the literature on dyslexia.

This is a book that has been reviewed by educators and child psychologists. Thriving with dyslexia is a challenge that requires patience and perseverance. Carrying out day-to-day activities with the child is key to improving their writing and reading skills. Each child is a totally different world and each child needs a particular help. All children with dyslexia have something in common and that is that they require different ways of learning than the traditional ones. This is why you have to give them more time so that they can learn and also give them emotional support and a multisensory teaching method that provides them with different stimuli so that they can integrate their basic skills. This is a wookbook that will help the dyslexic children in the company of an educator or an adult to guide them to practice writing and to develop certain skills with the exercises it contains. It is important to follow the following recommendations when practicing dyslexia exercises with children: Always be positive and always constructive. Keep in mind that the dyslexic child may have a difficult time doing things perfectly. Be patient. Never judge the capabilities of the child. Always accept what she is doing and congratulate her. A small step that you consider insignificant for the dyslexic child can be quite a challenge. Congratulate her strengths, their efforts, and her progress in furthering her learning. Issues instructions clearly and simply. In this book and the other volumes you have a multitude of different exercises and activities to help dyslexic children.
