Alba Series reviewed in the DSF Bulletin

Alba reviewThe Dyslexia – SPELD Foundation’s publication ‘The bulletin’, Autumn 2013, has just published an article reviewing the ‘Alba’ reading series.

I have scanned it – but the print is a bit small so here is the summary:

“As with the very popular existing catch-up readers produced by Phonic Books, this series will develop reading skills and confidence through interesting and engaging stories.  The accompanying workbook provides an extensive variety of activities including word-building games; opportunities to practise reading and spelling skills; phonological awareness activities, dictation and tasks to encourage comprehension.

The series will appeal to students struggling to acquire strong literacy skills as well as those with learning disabilities.  The content, illustrations and style of the books is appealing while also being appropriate for developing readers.”
