Practical dyslexia

10th January 1997 at 00:00

Overcoming Dyslexia: a practical handbook for the classroom brings the best of practice in the areas of multisensory teaching, whole language, and phonological awareness training into a programme which integrates skills teaching into real reading and writing. Written by Hilary Broomfield and Margaret Combley, it offers a teacher-friendly "hands-on" approach to assessing individual knowledge, skills and weaknesses in order to build up a detailed profile with practical ways forward for further learning.

Important features for all ages are: firm foundations in spoken language, the understanding of the nature and purpose of print; the building up of an awareness of the sounds within spoken language; and the development of automatic sound symbol links.
