Offering solutions to common problems students with dyslexia face, Alais describes tried-and-tested techniques for succeeding with reading, spelling, memorising information and time management, and even a simple method to ensure you never misplace your learning tools (such as pencils and books) again. The strategies are ideal for use in the run-up to exams, helping you to become more organised, less stressed and better prepared. This is a must-read pocket guide for students with dyslexia aged 11 to 18, and will also be a helpful source of ideas for teachers, SENCOs and parents of teens with dyslexia.

Learning with YOUR purpose in mind -- not your parents', not your teacher's, not your school's Every day, your school, your teachers, and even your peers draw lines to measure and standardize intelligence. They decide what criteria make one person smart and another person stupid. They decide who will succeed and who will just get by. Perhaps you find yourself outside the norm, because you learn differently -- but, unlike your classmates, you have no system in place that consistently supports your ability and desire to learn. Simply put, you are considered lazy and stupid. You are expected to fail. Learning Outside the Lines is written by two such "academic failures" -- that is, two academic failures who graduated from Brown University at the top of their class. Jonathan Mooney and David Cole teach you how to take control of your education and find true success -- and they offer all the reasons why you should persevere. Witty, bold, and disarmingly honest, Learning Outside the Lines takes you on a journey toward personal empowerment and profound educational change, proving once again that rules sometimes need to be broken.

Dr Tracy Alloway has been awarded the prestigious Joseph Lister Award from the British Science Association. 'The authors have written a guide for practitioners that is both highly practical, and yet based upon sound theoretical principles....This book achieves a successful, yet often elusive, link between theory, research and practice, and deserves to have a high readership. I will have no hesitation in recommending it to a range of readers' - Jane Mott, Support for Learning 'This book fulfils its aim to explain working memory and the limits it places on children's classroom learning. For teachers it gives a very clear guide and fills a gap in understanding that can only lead to more child-centred approaches to teaching and learning' - Lynn Ambler, Support for Learning 'A clear and accessible account of current theory and research, which is then applied to children's learning in the classroom....The range of strategies...are well grounded in theory derived from research and sit within a coherent conceptual model' - The Psychologist 'An easy to read yet informative book that explains the concepts clearly and offers practitioners ways to support those with poor working memory in the classroom' - SNIP `The topic of working memory nowadays tends to dominate discussions with teachers and parents, and both groups can helpfully be directed to this easy-to-read but serious text ... (it) is likely to prove a turning-point in the management and facilitation of hard-to-teach children. In a situation muddied by ever-multiplying syndromes and disorders, this book delivers a clarifying and reassuring isolation of the major cognitive characteristic that cuts across all the boundaries and leaves the class teacher and SENCO empowered. I think very highly of the book and shall be recommending it steadily' - Martin Turner, Child Center for Evaluation and Teaching, Kuwait Susan Gathercole is winner of the British Psychological Society's President's Award for 2007 A good working memory is crucial to becoming a successful learner, yet there is very little material available in an easy-to-use format that explains the concept and offers practitioners ways to support children with poor working memory in the classroom. This book provides a coherent overview of the role played by working memory in learning during the school years, and uses theory to inform good practice. Topics covered include: - the link between working memory skills and key areas of learning (such as literacy & numeracy) - the relationship between working memory and children with developmental disorders - assessment of children for working memory deficits - strategies for supporting working memory in under-performing children This accessible guide will help SENCOs, teachers, teaching assistants, speech and language therapists and educational psychologists to understand and address working memory in their setting.

Dyslexia impacts many areas of life! Okay - every area of life. It is so much more than a reading problem. It impacts childhood in such a powerful way that Dyslexia can launch a child into a life of creativity and success or plunge them into a life of depression and fear. Everything depends on the support of teachers, family and friends. That's you! As Dyslexics grow up their unique way of seeing the world influences their goals for the future, and also can influence the way they relate to their friends and lover(s). Dyslexia shows up on the job. Dyslexia shows up in the marriage. Dyslexia shows up in parenting styles and even in the way we relate to God and impact the world around us with our vision. Dyslexia is a way of thinking, living and imagining what life should be like. Dyslexia is a brain that thinks in 3D movies and can vividly see things that don't even exist yet, in their mind's eye. Dyslexia figures out how to turn a good idea, or a bad one, into reality. Dyslexia is an artist, an inventor, an architect, a storyteller, a politician, a teacher, a scientist, a chef, a director, an engineer, a world traveler and a faithful friend. In elementary school "Dyslexia" doesn't LOOK like a genius, Dyslexia can't look at a flat page, white with black letters all over it. In school that is what kids are expected to do for hours on end! BUT Dyslexia learns from the real world, and nothing in the real world is black, white and flat. Teachers don't always understand this because the dyslexic person is obviously brilliant. I know because I suffered under the influence of several teachers who didn't see the "gift" and only focused on my problems, I even failed 3rd grade! Life eventually turned around for me and I began to thrive in 5th grade, with the help on a few people who believed in me. So how do I know what it feels like to live a dyslexic life?

Then start reading online - click on the link and go to the "LOOK INSIDE" option for the first 4 chapters! "There were only a few things that I liked about school. I liked the pencil sharpener at the front of the classroom. I liked the closets where we hung our jackets. Most of all, I liked watching the big clock in the front of the classroom... when the hour hand pointed to the big three. I became a daydreamer. I would doodle on my schoolwork. I would play with my pencils and make origami when the teacher wasn't looking. I would look out the window and imagine I was somewhere else. I felt like school was a waste of time, I wasn't even good at schoolwork; the letters swirled around on the page, and long lists of math facts made me dizzy. I wanted to go home and build cities in the sand pile. The kids at school would always smash the cities at the playground. If I had been born twenty years later, I suppose I would have been labeled with "Dyslexia" and maybe "Asperger's Syndrome." In the right school, they may have even called me "gifted." But in the 1980s, kids like me were considered "immature" and were called "daydreamers." We became failures and were required to repeat whatever grades we couldn't pass. I told my teachers that I was going to be a mom and an artist, like my mom, so why should I even go to school? I was fourteen when I finally talked my parents into homeschooling me. That was when the woods became my classroom. That was when I fell in love with life and learning. That was when I met Josh. That was when the sky became my ceiling."
