Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty that affects the ability to read and spell. Affecting about ten per cent of children, it is the special educational need that teachers are most likely to encounter. This lively and interesting book provides advice on the most effective teaching and learning strategies that can be used in the classroom. Highly readable, practical and informative, Gavin Reid's book will prove invaluable for teachers, trainees, SENCOs and teaching assistants.
This wordbank is designed to complement the ACE Spelling Dictionary. It serves as a personal reference book for each individual, using the Aurally Coded English (ACE) system. As pupils meet a word that they are unsure how to spell, they can use the ACE dictionary to find it. As that word is likely to be needed again, it can be added by hand to each pupil's personal wordbank.
Motivating Children with Specific Learning Difficulties provides a comprehensive and definitive guide to what teachers need to know about motivation in pupils with Specific Learning Difficulties, including dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD. Written by three of the world leaders in research on motivation and classroom learning, this book seeks to provide teachers with an increased understanding of why particular strategies should be used with their pupils. It recognises the challenge of motivating children with learning difficulties and looks to help teachers enhance their skills and self-sufficiency. The authors address what motivation is, how to encourage it and the links between motivation and learning. They consider a range of Specific Learning Difficulties in relation to literacy, numeracy, motor development and co-ordination and attention factors in learning. Key issues on learning differences are presented in order to identify and address pupils’ specific needs, and the role parents and educators can play in motivation is also examined. The information and reflections offered in this book will be of interest to teachers across the globe, as well as postgraduate students working towards a qualification in Specific Learning Difficulties.
