DESCRIPTION OF CONTENTS
In her book, the author proposes teachers to “limit the succession of difficulties identifying specific learning troubles and adapting their pedagogy”.
The chosen angle is the domino effect. The “Dys” domino (for “dyslexia”, “dysorthographia”, “dyscalculia”, “dysphasia” and “dyspraxia” …) brings down with it a whole chain of dominoes: cerebral, cognitive, behavioural, school, psychoaffective, family and psycho-relational dominoes.
Reducing the “dys” effect, teachers can limit the succession of predictable failures, in the personal and school areas.
Each “dys” trouble is addressed in a chapter where are presented a case study, a scenario to understand what the child goes through, a concrete description of the trouble, a plan of the dominoes, and a table summing up the signs and possible pedagogical adaptations.
COMMENTS ON THIS PUBLICATION
Statistically, a teacher must expect to have at least two students with a specific learning trouble. How can the teacher limit the number of falling dominoes?
This book aims to help them. It is a synthesis of current knowledge of specific learning troubles.
It offers nursery and primary school teachers many practical advice and tools to identify those troubles (first step before treatment by professionals) and to adapt their pedagogy once the diagnosis is made.
