This book reinforces the need for understanding and support for children with dyslexia from parents and teachers, but also the importance of the children's own understanding of their strengths and weaknesses in order to fulfil their potential. It should be recommended reading for all those involved in dyslexia. - Professor Angela Fawcett, Director of the Centre for Child Research, Swansea University What is it like living with dyslexia on a day-to-day basis? Based on interviews with dyslexic children and their families, this insightful book presents first-hand accounts of how dyslexia affects the children themselves and the people around them. Living with Dyslexia, Second Edition places the original fascinating findings within the context of current research and practice in the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA. The author: examines issues of confidence and self-esteem; explores the coping strategies adopted by children and adults with dyslexia; investigates the concept of dyslexia-friendly schools; studies how children were first identified as having dyslexia, and the social and emotional difficulties they encountered; offers guidance on how teachers and parents can best support children with specific learning difficulties; considers the cognitive, educational, social and emotional perspectives in order for teachers and parents to gain a better understanding of dyslexia. This new edition provides an updated account of cognitive research and examines important changes in relation to Special Educational Needs policy and practice in the last ten years, including the Revised SEN Code of Practice (2001), Removing Barriers to Achievement (2004) and the National Literacy Strategy (2006). Living with Dyslexia recognises that the voices of children with dyslexia are increasingly important in developing good educational practice and makes an important contribution to the literature on dyslexia.

How can you really make a difference for your students? Teaching Tough Kids delivers a refreshing collection of realistic ideas to sustain the organisational and behavioural transformations of all students, particularly those who 'do it tough'; who learn and react differently. They are complex kids who find life tougher than most. Managing their emotion and behaviour presents educators with a spectacular challenge in schools today, and numbers are on the rise. Filled with inspirational case studies, this book focuses on building improved relationships, structures and behaviours, rather than seeing the student as 'the problem' that must be fixed. Highlighting the value of promoting positive connections with students of all ages, the author presents ways to incorporate inclusive ideas into everyday practice and construct pathways for students to become engaged in their learning and achieve success. This stimulating book shows teachers how to: build student connectedness to learning; set achievable goals for each individual child; support emotional stability; strengthen organisation patterns; address behavioural issues; improve homework planning; create friendships and deal with bullying. Teaching Tough Kids takes a particularly close focus on students identified with Learning Disability, Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Asperger Syndrome. Another group of students with executive functioning difficulties are emerging in schools. These are the kids who have endured neglect or too much stress and uncertainty in their lives and as a result display classic symptoms of hyperactivity, hyper vigilance and impulsivity. Teaching Tough Kids will be of immense interest to teachers, student teachers, staff in Pupil Referral Units, SENCos and all those involved with Behaviour Support work.
