Description

Supporting Children with Dyslexia focuses on the practical difficulties facing dyslexic pupils every day in every classroom. It provides teachers and parents with strategies to support dyslexic children and enable them to access the curriculum with a minimum of fuss and upheaval. The pupil's perspective is also considered, with a section devoted to encouraging children to be positive about themselves, develop coping strategies and become independent learners. The emphasis is on encouraging independence while providing just enough support to ensure success.show more
