Summary:

Practical, effective, evidence-based reading interventions that change students' lives Essentials of Understanding and Assessing Reading Difficulties is a practical, accessible, in-depth guide to reading assessment and intervention. It provides a detailed discussion of the nature and causes of reading difficulties, which will help develop the knowledge and confidence needed to accurately assess why a student is struggling. Readers will learn a framework for organizing testing results from current assessment batteries such as the WJ-IV, KTEA-3, and CTOPP-2. Case studies illustrate each of the concepts covered. A thorough discussion is provided on the assessment of phonics skills, phonological awareness, word recognition, reading fluency, and reading comprehension. Formatted for easy reading as well as quick reference, the text includes bullet points, icons, callout boxes, and other design elements to call attention to important information. Although a substantial amount of research has shown that most reading difficulties can be prevented or corrected, standard reading remediation efforts have proven largely ineffective. School psychologists are routinely called upon to evaluate students with reading difficulties and to make recommendations to address such difficulties. This book provides an overview of the best assessment and intervention techniques, backed by the most current research findings. Bridge the gap between research and practice Accurately assess the reason(s) why a student struggles in reading Improve reading skills using the most highly effective evidence-based techniques Reading may well be the most important thing students are taught during their school careers. It is a skill they will use every day of their lives; one that will dictate, in part, later life success. Struggling students need help now, and Essentials of Understanding and Assessing Reading Difficulties shows how to get these students on track.

Summary:

This book reinforces the need for understanding and support for children with dyslexia from parents and teachers, but also the importance of the children's own understanding of their strengths and weaknesses in order to fulfil their potential. It should be recommended reading for all those involved in dyslexia. - Professor Angela Fawcett, Director of the Centre for Child Research, Swansea University What is it like living with dyslexia on a day-to-day basis? Based on interviews with dyslexic children and their families, this insightful book presents first-hand accounts of how dyslexia affects the children themselves and the people around them. Living with Dyslexia, Second Edition places the original fascinating findings within the context of current research and practice in the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA. The author: examines issues of confidence and self-esteem; explores the coping strategies adopted by children and adults with dyslexia; investigates the concept of dyslexia-friendly schools; studies how children were first identified as having dyslexia, and the social and emotional difficulties they encountered; offers guidance on how teachers and parents can best support children with specific learning difficulties; considers the cognitive, educational, social and emotional perspectives in order for teachers and parents to gain a better understanding of dyslexia. This new edition provides an updated account of cognitive research and examines important changes in relation to Special Educational Needs policy and practice in the last ten years, including the Revised SEN Code of Practice (2001), Removing Barriers to Achievement (2004) and the National Literacy Strategy (2006). Living with Dyslexia recognises that the voices of children with dyslexia are increasingly important in developing good educational practice and makes an important contribution to the literature on dyslexia.

Summary:

The Second Language Learning Processes of Students with Specific Learning Difficulties is the only recent book available to offer a detailed and in-depth discussion of the second language learning processes of students with specific learning difficulties (SpLDs). It summarizes research advances in the fields of cognitive and educational psychology and integrates them with recent studies in the area of second language acquisition (SLA). Thus the book is relevant not only to readers who are particularly interested in the role of specific learning difficulties in learning additional languages, but also to those who would like to understand how individual differences in cognitive functioning influence SLA. The book focuses on four important areas that are particularly relevant for language learners with SpLDs: the processes of SLA in general and the development of reading skills in particular, the effectiveness of pedagogical programs, the assessment of the language competence of students with SpLDs and identifying SpLDs in another language. The book also views learners with SpLDs in their social and educational contexts and elaborates how the barriers in these contexts can affect their language learning processes. This is an excellent resource for language teachers, students, and researchers in the areas of second language acquisition and applied linguistics.

Summary:

If I can’t learn the way you teach, please teach me the way I can learn It is only when you read about real-life stories you want to believe that strategies work. The method suggested in Dyslexia Decoded have been tried and tested for more than two decades with different levels of difficulties, different students and a variety of situations. Processing information and using proper sound system results in learning differently, while styles of learning when incorporated in teaching, makes mild learning difficulties disappear. Emotional, social impacts of learning difficulties cannot be ignored as they cause greater harm than the difficulty itself. This book shows you just that and emphasizes the need to counsel students, teachers, parents and schools. Schools form a major part of children’s lives and when they take on the task of supporting the 10% of their population with specific learning difficulties they go beyond their own limitations and contribute a great deal to the lives of all children. A special school system is detrimental for children with specific learning difficulties even though it may seem to be the answer for other special needs. This book encourages schools to include students with specific learning difficulties, while guiding them to use the support which the Boards willingly give.

Summary:

Connecticut has seen a consistent rise in students identified as Learning Disabled since the release of the updated Guidelines for Identifying Children with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) (2010). While there has been a steady increase in Connecticut, national averages have decreased. The purpose of this research is to explore and describe how SLD identification takes place throughout the state of Connecticut and how the Guidelines are applied. The research utilized an exploratory qualitative approach consisting of focus groups and interviews with practicing professionals in the state of Connecticut to examine (a) what influences multidisciplinary teams' identification decisions; (b) if there are varying processes of identification throughout the state; and (c) the challenges and barriers educators face in the SLD identification process. Results reflect variances across the state in comprehensive evaluation design and RTI/SRBI practices that are influenced by participating multidisciplinary team members.
