Glue Ear is a common condition among young children but until recently its long-term effects on learning and achievement weren't fully understood. Lindsay's research has demonstrated that there is a significant link between Glue Ear, speech and language and dyslexia. This book will help teachers to understand the implications of temporary hearing loss, and demonstrate how to be proactive as well as reactive in tackling the issues. This book will also be helpful to health professionals who may be aware of the medical implications of Glue Ear but not the educational reverberations. A separate section for parents enables teachers/health visitors/GPs to access information to copy and give out to families.
"This book provides clear information as well as appropriate teaching strategies. It includes advice to parents on how they can help their child, and on common treatments." TES Extra, March 2006 "Dr Peer has written a much needed book! For too long there has been a gap on the 'essential' bookshelf for teachers, other professionals and parents who care for children with glue ear and/or dyslexia... This book should be required reading for all involved in the care of young children - including ENT consultants" Dyslexia Contact, Vol 24, No. 2, May 2006 "For teachers and health professionals working together collaboratively, this book will provide many easily found starting points for identifying and supporting a child who finds learning difficult."
