'This is a wonderful book ... well organised, accessible and jargon free. Particularly useful is the link to mainstream subject teaching. Without having to read the whole book, busy teachers and teaching assistants can dip in and out of the text in order to find appropriate strategies. This text should be on the shelf of every secondary school library and cited as Suggested Reading in training courses.' - Dr Lindsay Peer CBE, Chartered Psychologist, Peer Gordon Associates; Formerly Education Director, British Dyslexia Association
