    DescriptionTutors are determined to provide appropriate learning opportunities for the full range of learners who are coming to their classes. Some worry that they are not doing enough to support learners with dyslexia and wonder if they should be doing something special and different to meet the needs of this particular group. This book draws on the experience of many practitioners and outlines some of the key questions tutors should ask themselves, their colleagues and their learners. It shows how bringing together appropriate online resources, software, accessibility options and paper-based materials can increase confidence and make learning more enjoyable.
