Development of Dyslexia and Other SpLDs is about the persistence of dyslexia and specific learning difficulties (SpLD) into adulthood.
It pulls together experiences of many dyslexic/SpLD people. The book is written with non-linear readers in mind: those who need to move about a book picking up ideas that are currently relevant to them; a style that suits many dyslexic/SpLD readers. The book gives a framework for understanding the wide-ranging experiences of dyslexic/SpLD adults.
With the greater understanding, there should be better help for:* adults who still have no strategies for dealing with dyslexic/ SpLD problems* children who have some skills but not at the level of their overall intelligence* young children who show the first signs of difficulties* dyslexic/SpLD children in mainstream schools. A new paradigm is proposed whereby all teaching programmes utilise each learner's learning strengths - catering for dyslexic and SpLD adults and children involves vital teaching and learning approaches that are good practice for all.
