Dyslexia Matters Book 1 Ages 5-7

Effective ways of working with children who struggle to read, write and spell

It offers a rich and important foundation of phonemes, phonologic awareness and general phonics knowledge. Designed as a progression of activities, it also has the flexibility to work only on the age-levelled patterns of each book where appropriate.
