Reviews: Dyslexia in the Early Years – A Handbook for Practice

‘As the parent of a dyslexic child and a headteacher and SENCo for 17 years, I was impressed by the breadth and depth of this book. It is both practical and well researched. The emphasis on partnership with parents and providing intervention from the sound foundations of play-based early years pedagogy creates a book for practitioners, parents and those working with children who display a range of dyslexic tendencies.’

Australia seminar tour

I would like to thank all those who attended my seminars in Melbourne, Gold Coast, Brisbane and Adelaide as well as my talks at the Learning Differences Convention in Sydney. I have been greatly hearted by the feedback and I am looking forward to returning next year and continuing my very positive links with the ADA. I would also like to thank Jodi and Aaron from the ADA and also Kay Bosworth from Kidman Park Primary School in Adelaide for hosting the SA event.

Thank you New Zealand

Thanks to all those who hosted and attended my seminars in New Zealand. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone in Nelson, Taupo and in Christchurch. Thanks also to the Learning Disability Advisers who participated in the workshop at Auckland University.

I look forward to my return trip in August 2015. As you can see from the photos everyone was very involved in the tasks and I really appreciated working with such a motivated and skilled group of participants.
