Literacy Through Symbols

Symbols are used widely to help children and adults with learning difficulties. Their use ranges from helping children who have difficulties learning to spell, through to children and adults who are not able to use traditional text as a means of reading and self-expression. This second edition of an important and essentially practical book is now fully updated and revised to take into account the significant developments that have been made in using symbols to support literacy. It is full of ideas and examples of the ways in which access to literacy can be enhanced through the use of symbols, based on experience of the authors and many practitioners. Topics covered include: * how symbols are being used in schools, colleges and day centres * ways in which symbols can help and enhance learning and independence * lots of new examples of good practice from practitioners * the results of the Rebus Symbol Development project * how symbols fit with the National Literacy Strategy * how symbols can be used to make information more accessible
