It shows how this dovetails with the best of both mainstream primary approaches and specialist dyslexia-friendly methods. Teachers can use these principles to become confident in creating their own activities and resources.
The book showcases the holistic, creative aspects of the Steiner Waldorf literacy approach. The teaching of writing before reading is prioritised so as to engage children’s creativity in learning.
