A comprehensive guide that offers advice on supporting dyslexic students both in the classroom and through intervention from specialist practitioners.
Dyslexia Guidance is an invaluable resource; ideal for use after the Dyslexia Screener and Dyslexia Portfolio in providing teachers and SENCOs with practical advice on supporting dyslexic pupils, from pre-school through to university level.
The handbook features sensible advice and effective activities based on real classroom experiences and includes useful photocopiable materials for use in the classroom and small group settings. In turn, the resource will help you plan effective and targeted intervention programmes to support pupils with dyslexia.
By concentrating on the ‘life cycle’ of a pupil with dyslexia, Dyslexia Guidance takes the reader through each stage of a pupil’s school career. It starts with commonly occurring precursors for dyslexia – such as dislike of school and difficulty with letters and numbers – through transfer to secondary school, acquisition of study skills and techniques, and Access Arrangements for pupils tackling public examinations.
