Now in a fully updated third edition, this book will equip all teachers with the necessary knowledge of dyslexia in order for it to be effectively understood and managed in the mainstream classroom. Offering comprehensive guidance and support strategies, this resource is based around Reid’s signposts for successful inclusion: acknowledging differences; recognising strengths; understanding what is meant by inclusion; planning for practice; and ensuring attainable task outcomes. In identifying the key issues of inclusive practice, the book supports teachers as they strive to fulfil the social, educational and emotional needs of children with dyslexia.

Key features of the new edition include:

  • Up-to-date references to current research and legislation
  • New sections on evidence-based teaching strategies, developing independent learning and communication with parents
  • Detailed information on wider reading and additional resources, including websites, apps and software available to support learners with dyslexia

With practical strategies and resources designed to meet the needs of the busy classroom teacher, this book is crucial reading for educators and education students looking to help students with dyslexia reach their full potential.
