Summary

This text is intended to be a handy, practical guide to the educational difficulties encountered by children experiencing specific learning difficulties (dyslexia). It is aimed at parents of dyslexic children and non-specialist teachers who have these children in their classes.

Review:

This book should be in the Special Needs Section of every school's staff reference books and should be freely available for parents whose children are experiencing learning difficulties. Written by two experienced practitioners in this field, it gives a clear step by step guide to the various aspects of special needs and follows the route through the Statement of Educational Needs procedures. It is clearly written in a very readable format and it is easy to find a particular area for further information. I thoroughly recommend this book.
