Thursday 15 November 2018

In this book Margaret Crombie brings together her extensive knowledge and experience to provide a guide that is straightforward and practical. Key terms are explained in a way that make it an accessible resource for all. The complexities of assessments are explored, enabling the reader to understand the activities and purposes associated with this process and how to translate the findings into practice.

Each chapter clearly explains current thinking whilst at the same time focussing on the practical application of this in the classroom. There are numerous suggestions for effective activities throughout each chapter covering the whole curriculum as well as specifically for literacy intervention and support.

This is a book that can be referred to again and again by readers and provides both insight and practical support strategies that are relevant to anyone working with individuals in education who are dyslexic.
