Child-centred perspectives on dyslexia

Released: 09.03.15

Sean MacBlain Childhood Book

A new book 'Dyslexia, Literacy and Inclusion' will be published this month by Reader in Child Development and Disability, Sean MacBlain.

The new book has been written with authors Louise Long and Jill Dunn.

It is about raising standards in literacy for children with dyslexia by putting the child at the centre of everything you do, focusing on wellbeing, and recognising the role that adults have to play in ensuring all children reach their potential.

Dr Ian Luke, Dean of the Faculty of Education and Social Sciences, said: "Congratulations to Sean MacBlain on his recent work. In addition, Sean is a celebrated author of bestselling title 'Learning Theories in Childhood', now in its second edition, which has gone on to be translated into Vietnamese and Chinese."

Sharon James, Lecturer, South West Wales Centre for Teacher Education, University of Wales Trinity Saint David said: "This is a clear, concise discussion of dyslexia and literacy. The child is central to the thinking here; whilst the novice practitioner is given an introduction to the issues, the mature practitioner is challenged to review their outlook and look afresh. I cannot wait for my own copy."

The book will be published on 30 March 2015 by Sage.
