This book offers both research insights and practical guidance for teachers working in Early Years settings on how to create resource materials that would be suitable for the development of children with dyslexia. Beginning with a contextual note on the key difficulties faced by children at risk of dyslexia, the book takes the reader through the processes of identification and diagnosis, before offering ideas on how to tailor classroom materials for these students. The book's resource materials are designed to target areas such as reading, spelling, numeracy, language skills, social and emotional development, and problem solving skills.

"The purpose of this thesis was to translate into Arabic the book titled: Dyslexia in the Early Years: A Practical Guide to Teaching and Learning, by Dimitra Hartas (2006). The thesis also aimed at highlighting the problems encountered in the translation at the word, sentence, text and style levels. The methods and strategies for handling such problems were determined and discussed. The book was selected for translation due to the significance of its topic and the lack of Arabic references in this field. The difficulties encountered in translating the selected book into Arabic were also identified, classified and discussed with illustrative examples. Finally, solutions showing how these problems were handled were proposed. It was found that the major problems encountered at the word level pertain to: non-equivalence, polysemy, collocation, idioms and phrasal verbs, technical terms, proper nouns, names of programmes, reports, committees, and acronyms. At the sentence level, difficulties revolved around differences between the two languages in structure, concord, absence of SL structure in the TL, cohesion and coherence in the TL text and the use of punctuation marks. Finally, at the style level, the major difficulties identified were in the areas of nominalization vs. verbalization, subordination vs. coordination and complexity vs. simplicity in style"--Page 6.
