This third edition of this bestselling book for teachers contains new material on early identification and intervention. This third edition of Gavin Reid's popular book for non-specialist teachers has been thoroughly revised throughout and supplemented with additional material to reinforce the link between theory and practice. "Dyslexia" is a comprehensive overview of the field, providing more than just a quick fix to immediate difficulties by introducing the evidence base for why particular approaches may be effective. The topics include reading, spelling, creative writing, study skills, differentiation, identification of dyslexia, individual learning styles, the role of parents and policy and provision for dyslexia. A concluding section provides information on additional support and resources for use by teachers. Throughout, the book emphasises that approaches suitable for students with dyslexia will also benefit the whole class, building upon the teacher's repertoire and empowering them to be better teachers.
