Recent policy initiatives illuminate the need for greater teacher awareness about dyslexia in secondary and tertiary education. Yet the debates about dyslexia are often narrowly based and can exclude some teachers. This book attempts to open up the debate by bringing together different ways of talking and thinking about dyslexia. Fundamental questions about how to respond to dyslexia in teaching and support contexts are addressed and the significance of â??exploratory conversionsâ?? between learners and tutors is recognised. The need to restructure â??the structured approachâ?? and to consider meta-affectivity as well as metacognition is explored. Practitioners in both secondary and tertiary sectors can gain ready access to contributions from internationally respected writers and teachers in the field. Alan Hurstâ??s preface refers to â??this important bookâ?? as paving the way to a more truly inclusive attitude and approach to education in and beyond compulsory schooling.
