The first guide of its kind written specifically for trainee and newly qualified teachers, this standards-based text explores the needs of dyslexic learners in mainstream secondary schools. In light of the current dyslexia-friendly schools initiative, it looks at organisational-level support for dyslexic children, together with pragmatic strategies which teachers can use to support children's cross-curricular learning. Further, it includes case studies and practical tasks to build readers' confidence in supporting Specific Learning Difficulties, as well as a range of coping strategies and practical advice, based upon the authors' experience of working with dyslexic learners in different contexts over many years.
Still the biggest concern for many on initial teacher training courses is the acquisition of subject knowledge and the ability to translate that into effective teaching.
