This bestselling book for teaching literacy to children and young people aged 4–16 years with dyslexia and other specific literacy difficulties has been fully updated for its third edition.

Providing a structured multi-sensory programme, ‘Conquering Literacy’, that includes placement tests, well-established strategies and examples of lesson planning, teaching activities, and reading, spelling and literacy concept cards, this book is an essential practical resource for teachers.

This new edition includes:

  • an additional section for learners who need an individualised, structured programme at an advanced stage (Stage II);
  • a section on planning shorter, targeted interventions for learners with a particular difficulty e.g. spelling, revising;
  • three new chapters on teaching reading, spelling and writing within mainstream classrooms using strategies which are successful with learners with dyslexia
