Written by an authority in the dyslexia field, this is the first accessible guide to the close interplay of spelling and dyslexia. Kelli Sandman-Hurley talks the teacher or parent through why kids with dyslexia find spelling so hard, and what we can learn from the spelling mistakes in their writing samples. Introducing key terminology around morphemes (smallest unit of meaning in words) and phonemes (smallest contrastive units in language) in an accessible and clear way, Sandman-Hurley goes on to explain how we can identify, and learn from, kids' spelling miscues, and use them to further inform our teaching and instruction. Shedding much-needed light on an under-explored tool for classroom or home learning, Dyslexia and Spelling is essential reading for teachers and parents alike.

Research has shown that early identification and intervention is crucial and can in fact minimise, and may even prevent, the challenges of dyslexia from becoming too detrimental at later stages of education. This book offers both research insights and practical guidance for teachers working in Early Years settings on how to create resource materials that would be suitable for the development of children with dyslexia. Beginning with a contextual note on the key difficulties faced by children at risk of dyslexia, the book takes the reader through the processes of identification and diagnosis, before offering ideas on how to tailor classroom materials for these students. The book's resource materials are designed to target areas such as reading, spelling, numeracy, language skills, social and emotional development, and problem solving skills.

In Let Them Have Books, author Gaby Chapman offers a formula for delivering the gift of avid reading to every child.

The focus of this book is on examining issues of dyslexia, social exclusion and crime. Current estimations suggest that people with dyslexia are considerably over-represented in the UK's criminal justice system. The aim of this book is to employ a psycho-sociological methodology to expand knowledge on dyslexia and criminal behaviour. This approach rejects the bio-medical model of crime and places dyslexia and criminality within a social context. Developing a social model of crime and dyslexia, the book utilizes both quantitative and qualitative research methods to establish links between undiagnosed dyslexia, restricted literacy levels and criminal behaviours. The idea that social inequalities are due to issues of socio-economic status is an essential viewpoint in this study. The book primarily explores sociological links between undiagnosed dyslexia and reoffending and emphasizes the importance of dyslexia support. It uses a social model approach to locate disabling barriers with the aim of improving support for people with dyslexia and reducing reoffending.
