The updated, straight-talking and accessible guide is ideal for teachers, teaching assistants, SENCOs, senior leadership and even home schooling parents who want to know more about supporting students with Learning Differences.

Highlighting some of the more commonly encountered Specific Learning Differences (SpLD's), expert Diana Hudson concisely describes the signs of those that are most commonly encountered in the classroom. Covering: dyslexia, dyspraxia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, autism spectrum condition, ADHD, OCD and featuring brand new chapters on Pathological Demand Avoidance (PDA), Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) and tics and Tourette Syndrome, this book covers all the information you need, whilst reminding us that all neurodivergent children are individuals and have different qualities.

Diana provides an overview of each identity and evaluates how you may need to adapt your levels of support in the classroom - as well as practical suggestions for modifying teaching materials and methods to make learning enjoyable, effective and accessible for all students. There are also dedicated chapters on helping students with SpLD's to improve their organisation and develop effective revision skills and exam techniques.

Press Reviews

  • Sharon Hodgson MP, Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Dyslexia and Other Specific Learning Difficulties

    This book is a resource that embraces neurodiversity, supports students and emboldens teaching staff, school administrators and parents to strive for the best for their neurodivergent child. This guidance is key to making schools more equal and diverse places where all children can thrive. Every school should get a copy.
  • Bex Tear, Executive Head Fulham School

    A go to guide - readers can swiftly hone in to gain understanding and find practical advice. Diana has curated the information here to be an effective toolkit for supporting a range of Specific Learning Differences.
  • Prof. Justin Dillon, University College London

    We have moved beyond seeing neurodivergent students as having specific learning difficulties; it's much more helpful to recognise specific learning differences. Diana Hudson explains a range of conditions and how they can be manifested. Just as importantly, she gives practical and realistic advice that all teachers and schools can implement. This book provides essential reading for beginning teachers as well as those with years of experience.
