The Routledge Companion to Dyslexia

The Routledge Companion to Dyslexia is a ground-breaking analysis of the whole field of dyslexia by a distinguished team of international contributors and editors, engaged in literacy, inclusion and learning. Their diverse perspectives and wide expertise make this invaluable guide one of the most important additions to the field of dyslexia for over a decade.

The Routledge Companion to Dyslexia

Dyslexia is without doubt the most high profile and contentious learning difficulty, and it is a topic that has attracted a vast amount of research, opinion, professional schisms, and debate. The Companion provides an invaluable overview of the field of dyslexia with vital and clear emphasis on linking theoretical perspectives with best practice. This accessible text:

  • presents a survey of current and future development in research, with a focus on how research can inform practice
  • focuses on areas such as neurobiology, phonological processing, literacy acquisition, numeracy and multilingualism
  • considers assessment and identification, with contributions on early identification, reading, spelling and mathematics
  • addresses identifying and meeting needs in an inclusive context
  • discusses inclusion and barriers to learning in a variety of different national contexts
  • includes models of instruction, direct instruction, co-operative learning and cross-curricular learning.

Client Feedback

I had no previous experience working with students with special educational needs which is why I came to your seminars. So I just thought I'd write to say how engaging and informative your seminars were. I attended 'dyslexia as a learning preference' and 'notice and adjust strategies for a busy classroom'. You made me aware of so many little tactics that can make the running of the classroom that bit more exciting but wholly educational at the same time.
