Aimed at those who encounter secondary school students with dyslexia on a daily basis, this book takes a practical approach by breaking down the whole process of assessing the issues involved and then suggesting ways for teaching staff and students to implement a suitable programme of study skills. It has been written with the needs of busy teachers and students in mind. The book includes the following: assessment approaches; checklists; photocopiable activities; and suggestions for useful resources. Results from qualitative research are included to provide an additional practical insight into study skills and dyslexia in the secondary school. Theoretical knowledge has been used to underpin and inform practice. Teachers of students with dyslexia who are not specialists should find this a useful guide; it should also be of interest to SENCOs and teaching assistants.
Marion Griffiths has extensive classroom teaching experience and has taught study skills for many years; she currently works as a freelance Literacy Consultant and is also a research student at University College Worcester.
