A book for teachers, carers, parents or anyone involved in Special Educational Needs (SEN), that shares Joe Beech?s story but, more importantly, is full of practical ideas that can be used by students with dyslexia and by teachers teaching children with dyslexia and dyspraxia in the classroom.

The Little Book of Dyslexia references both personal experience and current applied research and findings in order to highlight issues faced by people with dyslexia. It looks at a number of strategies and lesson ideas which can be used both inside and outside the classroom to help students with dyslexia and specific learning difficulties. It also lists various resources which can be used alongside these strategies to create a successful learning environment for those with dyslexia.

The book progresses through the various challenges that are faced at different age ranges, and support needed, starting with the youngest in early years, including some of the early signs you may see with dyslexia, moving up through primary and secondary school and finally onto higher education and university and being a student teacher.

An outstanding guide for students, teachers, Special Educational Needs Coordinators (SENCOs) and parents.


Joe Beech was diagnosed with both dyslexia and dyspraxia at age seven. He is now a qualified physics teacher. Joe won an Outstanding Achievement Award given by the British Dyslexia Association in October 2013 for his work.
