This practical and accessible book addresses the sensitive issue of difficulties in literacy development. The authors outline what is meant by 'literacy' and the barriers to literacy development such as social class, ethnicity, culture and gender. The book emphasises practical st...rategies and programmes to help reduce these barriers at school, family and community levels. Throughout, the authors relate cognitive, psychological, and socio-cultural perspectives to current curriculum policies, controversies and ethical considerations. This book enables practitioners to reflect critically upon the choices available to them in assessing and supporting students who experience difficulties in literacy development. Topics covered include a thorough consideration of dyslexia, the conceptualising of literacy, equity issues, and suggestions for assessment and planning for pupils. It will be essential reading for students on initial teacher training courses, and teachers on CPD courses in the area of special needs, literacy and dyslexia.
