This book is aimed at those who encounter secondary school students with dyslexia on a daily basis. It takes a practical approach by breaking down the whole process of assessing the issues involved and then suggesting ways for teaching staff and students to implement a suitable program of study skills. It is well structured, clear, useful and written with the needs of busy teachers and students very much in mind.
Included are assessment approaches, checklists, photocopiable activities, and suggestions for useful resources.
Results from qualitative research are included to provide an additional practical insight into study skills and dyslexia in the secondary school. Theoretical knowledge has been used to underpin and inform practice.
Teachers of students with dyslexia who are not specialists should find this a useful guide. It will also be of great use to SENCOs and Teaching Assistants.
Marion Griffiths has extensive classroom teaching experience and has taught study skills for many years. She currently works as a freelance Literacy Consultant and is also a research student at University College Worcester.
