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.
