The author provides an overview of the strengths and weaknesses commonly associated with each of these conditions, as well as practical suggestions for modifying teaching materials and methods to make learning enjoyable, effective and accessible for students. Throughout the book, she emphasises the importance of the home-school relationship, and gives essential practical tips for communicating the student's needs to others within the school and dealing with the tricky issue of disclosure. This straight-talking and accessible guide is ideal for teachers, teaching assistants, and those in school management who want to know more about supporting students with Specific Learning Difficulties." --"@en ;
