"The authors of this text both have a strong background in U.K. based special education and educational psychology. As the title states, it is aimed at practitioners and is linked to the British Dyslexia Association professional criteria. As such, it is a recommended text for those seeking accreditation on courses such as Approved Teacher Status and associate membership of the BDA [...] This slim text (161 pages) packs in a huge amount of distilled wisdom and it would be of great value to those interested in training in this field, as well as the classroom practitioner." - SEN Magazine
