Understanding Difficulties in Literacy Development: Issues and Concepts.
Based on current research, debates and concerns, this Reader adopts a cross disciplinary approach to understanding and working with those who experience difficulties with literacy. It provides a broad view of difficulties in literacy and related educational and curriculum learning issues across a range of ages, phases and settings.
The Reader first considers questions of literacy, before going on to look at literacy development in relation to:
Issues and concepts in public reading debates
Literacy curriculum policy contexts
