From the Back Cover:

Now fully updated in its Fifth Edition, Gavin Reid’s best-selling handbook remains an essential resource in the fields of education and literacy. As in previous editions, theoretical explanations and the latest research are linked with practical solutions for helping dyslexic individuals of all ages. The book focuses on inclusion and meeting the individual’s need within the mainstream educational system, but also addresses options for specialized provision. Chapters cover the basics of dyslexia, assessment issues and approaches, needs identification, the acquisition of literacy, strategies for supporting learning, and more.

The Fifth Edition contains new coverage of multilingualism, the use of technology, co-existing conditions (including dyspraxia, dyscalculia, and ADHD), and positive dyslexia. It also adopts a more international focus by assembling the latest policies and best practices from around the world, including Asia, the Middle East, Canada, Australia, and Europe. Filled with practical suggestions, learning summaries, and helpful activities for readers, this comprehensive and accessible explanation of the latest debates and developments in dyslexia continues to inform and support practitioners and trainees in the field.
