May 2022 | 520 pages | Corwin UK

This bestselling book for teaching literacy to children and young people aged 4–16 years with dyslexia and other specific literacy difficulties has been fully updated for its third edition.

Providing a structured multi-sensory programme, ‘Conquering Literacy’, that includes placement tests, well-established strategies and examples of lesson planning, teaching activities, and reading, spelling and literacy concept cards, this book is an essential practical resource for teachers.

This new edition includes:

  • a section on planning shorter, targeted interventions for learners with a particular difficulty e.g. spelling, revising;
