    DescriptionThis unique resource provides a comprehensive review of current knowledge about phonological awareness, together with practical guidance for helping preschoolers to adolescents acquire needed skills. Up-to-date findings are synthesized on the development of phonological awareness; its role in literacy learning; and how it can be enhanced in students at risk for reading difficulties and those with reading disorders or speech or language impairments. Of particular value to general and special educators and speech - language professionals, the book's clear recommendations for assessment and intervention show how to translate the research into day-to-day teaching and clinical practice.

    Review quote
    'A necessary and welcome text... It is likely that it will be used widely in courses covering literacy acquisition as well as by professionals working with clinical populations who have reading difficulty... 5 Stars!' - Doody's Review Service 'Covering every important topic within the domain of phonological awareness, Gillon provides a clear but comprehensive explanation of research underpinnings for her practical guidelines on assessment and instruction of both oral and written language. The depth of her understanding and scholarship, coupled with the utility of her recommendations for intervention, makes this an unusually fine resource. I will consult it often.' - Louisa Moats, EdD, Director of Literacy Research and Professional Development, Sopris West Educational Services, Longmont, Colorado, USA 'A very good resource for any professional who is working with children who are at risk for phonological awareness deficits... Provides a valuable introduction for readers who are new to this topic as well as a useful quick reference for those who are more familiar with this large literature.' - Journal of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology 'A very user-friendly volume, and one of great value to teachers and other practitioners. Highly recommended.' - Australian Journal of Learning Disabilities
