Many pupils with dyslexia have poor spelling and handwriting, even when their reading is adequate. This practical yet evidence-based book shows teachers who work with pupils with dyslexia how they can effectively address these areas of weakness. Diane Montgomery introduces her popular Cognitive Process Strategies for Spelling (CPSS) and provides guidance on how this direct action can be successfully used in both primary and secondary contexts.? The book describes dyslexia-friendly approaches in Logographic, Alphabetic and Orthographic phases – ‘the three faces’ of dyslexia. Best literacy practice for all children is illustrated in a developmental reading and spelling approach, handwriting as a support to literacy teaching is explained and strategies for overcoming handwriting difficulties are detailed from Reception onwards. Dyslexia-friendly Strategies for Reading, Spelling and Handwriting is full of new research, case examples and practical methods that have been tried and tested in the classroom. This is a must-read guide for all teachers and SENCOs in primary and secondary settings working with pupils with dyslexia.

Taking a developmental approach, this accessible text addresses the ever increasing interest in identifying the characteristics of dyslexia in young children and reflects on the best way to reach and support these learners. Drawing upon current research, the author considers our current understanding of dyslexia and calls upon best practice to advise professionals, students and family members alike who seek to fulfil the potential of young children with, or showing the signs of, dyslexia. This book considers key topics explored in current best practice and dyslexia research, including: the importance of the role of speaking, hearing and understanding language dyslexia in relation to other languages and orthographies dyslexia and overlapping characteristics, particularly dyspraxia the role of play identifying and assessing dyslexia in the early years. Adopting a dyslexia-friendly position, Barbara Pavey acknowledges the ethics associated with a social model of disability, so that the focus is upon modifying teaching and learning, and respecting the views of children and parents throughout. This book includes assessment and practice strategies, good practice points, helpful ideas, first-hand narratives of dyslexia, pointers for further reading, resources and online tools, and will be of enormous practical use to anyone supporting a young child with potential or diagnosed dyslexia.

Was wäre, wenn der zweite Weltkrieg anders ausgegangen wäre? Wenn ein grausames, totalitäres Regime die Weltherrschaft an sich reißen wollte? Würden wir brav unser armseliges Leben in Zone 7 leben, bei den Ratten und Fliegen, in ständiger Angst vor den Ledermantelmännern? Würden wir vor der Fahne des Mutterlands strammstehen, wie die Musterschüler mit ihren langen Hosen und ordentlich gebundenen Schlipsen? Oder würden wir wie Standish Treadwell, der Junge mit den verschiedenfarbigen Augen, unseren ganz eigenen Weg gehen?

Autismus als Kontextblindheit

Untersuchungen in Europa, Kanada und den USA ergaben, dass bei sechs bis sieben von tausend Personen eine Autismus-Spektrum-Störung (ASS) diagnostiziert wird. Was bedeutet das? Mit »Autismus als Kontextblindheit« beschreibt Peter Vermeulen eine neue Sichtweise zum Autismus-Verständnis. Seine Kernaussage lautet: Menschen mit Autismus zeigen in der Wahrnehmung ihrer objektbezogenen und sozialen Umwelt Probleme bei der schnellen, vorbewussten, intuitiven Erfassung und Nutzung von Kontextinformation. Dieses im Vergleich zu anderen Menschen herabgesetzte Gespür für Kontext ist hirnorganisch begründet und erklärt die autistischen Besonderheiten in Wahrnehmung, sozialer Interaktion, Kommunikation und Denken. Peter Vermeulen knüpft (kritisch) an viele bestehende neurokognitive Erklärungsansätze an und untermauert und belegt seine Thesen mit zahlreichen wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungsergebnissen, aber auch mit Beispielen aus seiner langjährigen praktischen Erfahrung mit Menschen aus dem Autismus-Spektrum. Allgemeinverständlich und unterhaltsam geschrieben eröffnet das Buch Betreuern, Lehrern, Begleitern und Eltern von Menschen mit Autismus neue Sichtweisen. Es zeigt Strategien zur Kompensation bzw. Hinweise und Beispiele für eine autismusfreundliche Gestaltung der Umwelt und gibt so neue Impulse für den Alltag der Betroffenen.
