Dyslexia and Physical Education by Madeleine Portwood


Dyslexia and Physical Education by Madeleine Portwood

Much research has focused on dyslexia and co-ordination. This book examines the literature and provides a framework to support pupils with dyslexia, not only during PE lessons but in less structured environments, for example during break time when pupils are likely to be involved in physical activities.
