Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users."
This book is a handy, practical guide to the educational difficulties encountered by children experiencing specific learning difficulties (dyslexia) and how to help them with reading, writing and numeracy. It is aimed at parents of dyslexic children and non-specialist teachers who will have these children in their classes. It is written by two experienced and qualified practitioners.
