I particularly liked the section on emotional intelligence, but I also liked the practical suggestions, and ideas for getting parents involved.

Clear and accessible text, well-presented with chapter aims and summaries to guide the reader. Relevant examples follow a brief case-study approach with reflective exercises. Chapter 3 (dyslexia) was especially well-received by students and formed the base for much discussion and debate.

Well written - excellent sections : aims, example and summary.
Appreciate the reflective 'exercises' - these will be useful for trainee teachers.
Clearly written and researched book. We will be recommending it as a supplementary reader linking SEND, literacy and inclusion.
Thank you

Chapter is now available for the Dyslexia: Leadership & Management module as additional whole-child perspective of the book is a useful addition to the reading list.

I would recommend the book to all primary and early years classroom teachers and support assistants and all who work with children with dyslexia. Students in Teacher Training (primary and early years) would also gain knowledge and understanding from reading and reflecting on the contents of the book.
