About the Author

Dr Kathleen Kelly PhD, MA (SEN), Dip TESL, AMBDA, is a senior lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University in the Centre for Inclusion and Special Educational Needs. She is Programme Leader for the MA in Specific Learning Difficulties and has presented papers at a number of international conferences in this area. For several years she has taught courses on specific learning difficulties (dyslexia) to undergraduates as part of the initial teacher training programme in addition to postgraduate awards. She has considerable experience in delivering courses to meet the criteria set out by the British Dyslexia Association for Approved Teacher Status (ATS) and is Associate Member of the British Dyslexia Association (AMBDA). Kathleen has taught a wide range of learners with dyslexia, from children as young as four years to those at Key Stage 5. She has worked in both mainstream and special schools, for language support and learning support services, as a SENCO in a primary school, and as Head of Sixth Form in a special school. She has many years' experience of supporting multilingual children with special educational needs (including specific learning difficulties). Multilingualism and dyslexia is a particular area of interest and her doctorate was also in this area. Sylvia Phillips, BA, DASE, MEd (SEN), AMBDA, began her career as a teacher of English in secondary schools where she first became interested in why some learners had severe literacy difficulties. She later joined Manchester Metropolitan University where she was a Principal Lecturer, Head of SEN, and then Head of Continuing Professional Development. At MMU she developed the first courses for specialist dyslexia teachers at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. During her time there, she also continued to work in primary, secondary and special schools both with teachers and directly with pupils. She developed and taught on SEN courses for teachers in the UK and was the UK partner (with Italy, Belgium and Spain) developing and teaching EU courses on `Inclusion and SEN' for European educationalists. She has served on the Accreditation Board of the British Dyslexia Association and has also been involved in several dyslexia research projects. She is currently course leader of the specialist dyslexia teachers' course at Glyndwr University, Wales. She has co-authored Putting the Code to Work (Primary and Secondary editions, 1998, MMU - MET Publications), Inspection and Beyond (1997, Pearson), Management Skills for SEN co-ordinators (1999, Falmer Press), and A Multi-sensory Teaching System for Reading (1998, MMU Publishing), a fully scripted set of materials for teaching small groups of pupils with dyslexia. Sylvia's other main areas of interest lie in `learner voice', pupils' social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, and supporting teachers undertaking enquires into their practice.


`Teaching Literacy to Learners with Dyslexia should be available in every classroom in the country!

Kelly and Phillips have utilised their vast knowledge and unquestionable experience to provide the reader with a "ready guide" for practice. This is an essential book for all teachers and those undergoing teacher training. `

The book will be of interest and value to teachers working with learners aged 5-18 and supports them in providing an evidence based and comprehensive programme. With over 150 teaching points, this book is excellent value for money and would form a useful core resource for staff. -- Mary Mountstephen

It also explains clearly how to teach language in a multisensory, cumulative and structured way. It contains ideas that even experienced practitioners should review constantly to make sure they are following good practice. -- Kevin Smith
