Dyslexia : Theory and Good Practice

£23.99

Product description

A collection of fourteen papers selected from the 5th International Conference of the British Dyslexia Association, with a particular emphasis on good practice from infancy to adulthood.

Laminated wraps, slight shelfwear, back lower corner creased. Owner name and brief note half-title and title pages; otherwise internally unmarked. ix + 321pp.

This is the 2001 volume in the series emanating from successive International Conferences organised by the British Dyslexia Association. Considerable progress has been made in identifying the causes of dyslexia and providing intervention to break into the cycle of failure. This selection of papers, from the 5th International Conference of the British Dyslexia Association in 2001, brings together perspectives on aspects of theory and practice. A key feature is the inclusion of a series of chapters on good practice from infancy to adulthood, in addition to themes on biological bases, cognitive processes and intervention. The research reported covers all the major theories of dyslexia and reflects state-of-the-art knowledge in developing areas such as genetics and infancy research. Authors include not only keynote speakers Maryanne Wolf, Joe Torgesen and John Stein, but also many other major international players. A particular highlight is the call from Rod Nicolson to consider targets for dyslexia research for the next decade, in terms of unity of purpose. This is the 2001 volume in the series emanating from successive International Conferences organised by the British Dyslexia Association.
