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

Community, family, society and individual identity

Social justice and equity issues and learning disabilities
