  • "Full of practical ideas to assist dyslexic students in class... This is a very important book for all teachers working in ELT today. It encourages teachers to reflect on how inclusive their teaching practice is and what strategies and techniques they can employ to eliminate many of the barriers and impediments that obstruct dyslexic students. The book presents a clear and easily applicable methodological framework for teachers who have (or will have) learners with dyslexia and who seek to provide more informed and more appropriate learning support."

  • "A book aiming to support English language learners with dyslexia is long overdue... Supporting Learners with Dyslexia in the ELT Classroom will not only help teachers to support dyslexic learners, but will also encourage them to rethink many aspects of their current practice and create accessible learning for all students in the ELT classroom."
