Case Studies for Teaching Students with Dyslexia
Macnamara, Gael R.
This easy-to-use book of case studies helps you recognize the signs of dyslexia and prescribe effective teaching strategies for students with dyslexia. It includes a Case Study Analysis Sheet so you can work through important aspects of a student's personal, academic, and social life. You can then compare what you've compiled to the author's comments from her own work with these types of students. One chapter of this book is devoted to helping you get started with an assessment. You'll find eight steps detailed and clearly described, beginning with completing a Client Information Form. Then you'll learn how to move on to determining unknown letters in the Phono-Cards Deck, creating a Drill Pack, and ending sessions with a reinforcing and fun game. You'll also find out how to obtain the information you need from a young child so that effective remediation can take place. And you'll get specific questions and easy-to-implement strategies for evaluating and strengthening the writing skills of students with dyslexia. Influenced and inspired by the work of Alice Ansara and her passion for reaching students with dyslexia, this book is ideal for reading teachers and tutors working in a group or as part of advanced training. It can also be used in college programs, or by individual teachers seeking to advance their own skills.
