About this Book

This book highlights the most recent developments in the area of research, policy and practice. All the authors are well known in the field of dyslexia and they will offer significant contributions at the forthcoming BDA conference ' Dyslexia: the dividends from research to policy and practice' to be held at Warwick University in March 2004.

In addition to the opening chapter, which provides an overview of developments in dyslexia, there are also chapters on the research associated with neurological factors, the cerebellum, genetics and the links between research and practice.

The policy section provides insights into policy developments from Europe, the UK and the United States, as well as polic developments relating to both children and adults. The practice section is comprehensive with chapters on multilingualism, the range of specific learning difficulties, ICT, mathematics, the implications for the classroom from the science of learning and the features of dyslexia friendly schools.
