This handbook is designed to help practitioners to set up a multisensory learning environment to support young children who have specific literacy difficulties, such as dyslexia, and contains a wealth of practical ideas to boost early phonics.
The activities focus on phonological and spatial awareness, fine motor skills and working memory. Everyday objects and readily available materials are utilised as part of these.
There is also a structured, step-by-step guide to effectively approaching early phonics, along with ideas for supporting parents and extension activities. The author's key emphases are on activity, fun and practice for 'automaticity'.
With sections of the book colour coded and illustrated with photographic examples of the activities, this is a user-friendly guide.
