Providing a structured programme for teaching literacy to children and young people with dyslexia and specific literacy difficulties, this book makes explicit links between theory, research and practice. It offers a structured, cumulative, multi-sensory teaching programme for learners with dyslexia, and draws attention to some of the wider aspects of the learning styles and differences of learners with dyslexia such as memory, information processing and automaticity.

The book discusses:

- the rationale for a structured multi-sensory approach

- the development of phonological, reading, writing and spelling skills

- working with learners who have English as an additional language (EAL)

- lesson structure and lesson-planning

- alphabet and dictionary skills

- memory work and study skills

- teaching the programme to groups

- ideas for working with young children.

Designed to help support any learner, from ages five to 18, with dyslexia or specific learning difficulties, the authors encourage the use of the programme as part of everyday teaching to not only develop literacy but to put dyslexic learners in control of their own learning.

There are tried and tested strategies and activities provided, which the reader can use to support their literacy work. Particularly useful for teachers working with learners who have special educational needs and specifically those with dyslexia, this book contains everything you need to help improve and develop the literacy skills of the learners in your setting.

'Teaching Literacy to Learners with Dyslexia' has it all - a feast of practice offering a prescription for success. All teachers will be eager to get their hands on this book! Grounded in solid and up to date research, it combines best practice in teaching literacy with insights into the cognitive and practical skills essential for literacy learning. Part II on 'conquering literacy' is a complete multisensory teaching programme and one that echoes the spirit of recent government initiatives that purport to effectively deal with dyslexia and their desire to boost the training of teachers in this area. This book shows exactly how to achieve this! Steeped in the long established tradition of the most appropriate and successful approaches for teaching children with dyslexia Kathleen Kelly and Sylvia Phillips, using their vast knowledge base and unquestionable experience, have utilised, what is considered by most, to be best practice in teaching literacy and incorporated this into a 'user-friendly' teaching manual. By providing a clear rationale and practical explanations of literacy concepts and conventions they will simplify the task of dealing with the literacy challenges for many teachers. Every school needs to have access to this book' -
