“’This is a clearly signposted and very manageable book with lots of fun, multisensory activities. Many of the ideas are in game format which can also be shared with parents and will be useful to all children not just those with dyslexia. It will be valued by teachers who want to know what to do, when they don’t know what to do!’” – Bernadette McLean, Principal at Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre,
“OF PREVIOUS EDITION: Gavin Reid and Shannon Green offer ideas to accommodate the broad spectrum of challenges encountered by dyslexic pupils. This title is an essential addition to the teacher’s toolkit.” – June Massey, Dyslexia teacher, trainer and assessor, UK
“OF PREVIOUS EDITION: [This book] deserves to become a central feature in every staffroom. I would like to see it become dog-eared, highlighted, annotated and thoroughly well used! Soon the school could have 1000 or more valuable ideas to share, tailored to their pupils and their curriculum – which will benefit all pupils.” – Rosie Wood, Speech and Language Therapist, Former Chief Executive of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre
