Written by an authority in the dyslexia field, this is the first accessible guide to the close interplay of spelling and dyslexia. Kelli Sandman-Hurley talks the teacher or parent

through why kids with dyslexia find spelling so hard, and what we can learn from the spelling mistakes in their writing samples. Introducing key terminology around morphemes (smallest unit of meaning in words) and phonemes (smallest contrastive units in language) in an accessible and clear way,

Sandman-Hurley goes on to explain how we can identify, and learn from, kids' spelling miscues, and use them to further inform our teaching and instruction. Shedding muchneeded

light on an under-explored tool for classroom or home learning, Dyslexia and Spelling is essential reading for teachers and parents alike.


Parents, teachers in mainstream and special schools, support teachers, trainers and assessors of dyslexia
