Here are some references to Resources:
Readers for inexperienced upper primary pupils:
http://www.collinseducation.com/Subjects/details.aspx?group=1&subjectid=22&seriesid=92&itemid=847 Collins Big Cats materials, but there is the issue of decoding levels and interest levels. The one big plus about Big Cats is the variety of genres; not many schools use it yet – only up to P. 5 but P. 6/7 texts in the pipeline. http://www.phonicbooks.co.uk/ Dandelion readers – a Synthetic Phonics reading Scheme. I have a sample (Unit 10 Book 1 The Stink) if anyone wants a look.
If I can identify someone to trial either of these resources I might be able to purchase them! Let me know.
http://www.supportingdyslexicpupils.org.uk/ Secondary Resources. These are fantastic. 18 practical booklets on all aspects.
http://www.dyslexiatransition.org/ Transition – not just for secondaries of course. I met with a French teacher yesterday and we found the Modern Languages booklet full of good strategies and advice.
Both these will be in schools very shortly.
I’d be keen to hear how useful you find them.
