So, I've got Dyslexia ... now what?

Understanding what specific learning difficulties mean to you

 

So, I've got Dyslexia ... now what?

£6 (FREE postage)

What does it mean to have dyslexia? How does a young person diagnosed with dyslexia make sense of what it is all about?
Often adults are uncertain of the implications themselves and unsure about what to tell children. This book will help all those involved get a much better understanding of dyslexia, what you can do to help, and what to expect in terms of support.

Suitable for children from about 7 to 14 years old, the book provides a framework that will enable an adult and child to work through the sections together, remove some of the mystery that often surrounds dyslexia, and take a pragmatic approach to dealing with it.

Identifying difficulties at a very early stage means you can start helping at a crucial time. In this handy booklet, the author highlights the need for early identification of learning traits using a range of screening devices and lists suitable standardised tests. The best part of the book, of invaluable use to all early years teachers, is the section on meeting the needs of pupils, which, she states, should arise from the normal curriculum activities. No additional phonic training here then! Her advice and recommendations are practical and as such would readily be transferred into teaching practice, improving the outcomes for all pupils. A bargain at £6 for 60 pages!

Word problems. You've come across this ... children can do calculations – the mechanical aspect – but put the problem into a written context and you will frequently hear, ‘Is it an add or a take away?'  Using a gradual and structured approach, this makes makes a traditionally difficult aspect of mathematics much more accessible and comprehensible. Introducing one concept at a time, and using language and illustrations that are accessible and non-threatening, children are guided through a series of decision-making steps.

 

This is an ideal tool for Foundation and KS1.

Is the language of maths causing problems for your pupils?

Many children are able to cope in maths when asked to do calculations, but struggle when the same calculations are presented as written problems. For this reason, word problems are perhaps one of the least popular and most difficult aspects of primary mathematics.
Getting to Grips with Word Problems provides a structured approach to help such pupils. Starting with the four main operations, pupils work through a format that not only trains them to think carefully about the way in which a problem can be attacked, but also promotes success before moving on to more challenging chapters. Each of the following chapters begins with a ‘Getting to Grips with’ section which helps to explain the concepts involved, followed by ‘Solve It’ sections with contextual questions for pupils to work through. The chapters deal with such concepts as decimals, percentages, fractions, money, averages and measurement – topics which pupils of all abilities may struggle with from time to time.

Why is it that the children who can least afford to switch off are the ones who don’t pay attention? And that children who most need to ask for help are the ones least likely to do so? If children are opting out in the classroom, switching off or passively waiting for direction, we need to understand the barriers they face and help them engage by making their learning opportunities more meaningful, interactive and rewarding.

This book aims to make classroom experience more accessible to all learners, and highlights the links between behaviour and hidden language processing difficulties. Based on tried and tested activities, strategies and self-help skills, you will find answers to these questions and ways of improving attention and concentration linked to a simple troubleshooting guide.
