Dyslexia and learning style: a practitioner's handbook. 2nd ed

Mortimore, T (2008) Dyslexia and learning style: a practitioner's handbook. 2nd ed. John Wiley & Sons, Chichester. ISBN 9780470511688

Abstract

The first section of this research based but practical book has been updated to examine the most recent research in two key areas: dyslexia and the dyslexic experience and the major cognitive and learning styles. In the light of increased controversy around the use of learning style theory in the educational arena, suggestions are made as to ways in which these theories can be utilized to inform teaching and learning and maximize success for vulnerable learners. The second section provides a range of ways in which to enable learners to understand and utilize their individual styles along with techniques to help students to absorb, process and create responses to information across the curriculum; practical strategies to help teachers to adapt material to suit differing ways of learning and activities to help students to become more flexible and successful in their approach.
