Approaching Difficulties in Literacy Development, Felicity Fletcher-Campbell
Understanding Difficulties in Literacy Development, Janet Soler
Both these books provide an excellent breadth and depth of relevant information to support my course.
This book gives my learners some of the underpinning knowledge needed when working with and supporting learners with Dyslexia in their learning environment. I highly recommend this as part of our booklist for the level 5 literacy subject specialism
Interesting and useful book. I will refer to parts of it but the book as a whole is too specialised for the students I am working with at present. I will recommend to colleagues teaching on other courses, particularly masters.
A useful text to provide recommended reading to support studies
