The new edition of Peter Westwood's best-selling Reading and Learning Difficulties addresses recent initiatives around the teaching of reading, the value of a phonics-based approach, and international research around literacy teaching, learning and pedagogy. It presents evidence-based methods for teaching reading skills, looks at the increasing role of technology and online learning in literacy, and evaluates the success of literacy interventions implemented in Australia and elsewhere. Reading and Learning Difficulties provides guidance on how to develop flexible teaching methods to suit varied ways of learning. By examining the way readers process texts, and identifying the knowledge and skills needed to become a proficient reader, this book explains why learning problems can sometimes occur and what can be done to prevent or overcome these difficulties.
