Additional Book Details

"This book is a really practical, hands-on guide packed with a wealth of advice on strategies and "things to try" reflecting the authors′ extensive experience. If you want to make effective, inclusive dyslexia-friendly classrooms a reality rather than an aspiration, this book is for you." - Dr John P. Rack, Head of Research and Development, Dyslexia Action

In this toolkit the authors provide you with the foundations for making your setting and your teaching style dyslexia-friendly. There is a general overview of the principles and practices required, and what the dyslexia-aware teacher needs to bear in mind.

The book offers you ideas and advice, and will ensure you feel confident you are doing the right things to help overcome barriers to learning.
