What happens if children aren’t making progress with language and literacy, and what sort of learning impairments might be the cause? How can the study of children’s thinking help us to understand these learning difficulties? This album offers insights into some of the problems faced by children with the developmental disorders dyslexia, poor comprehension and specific language impairment. In the main audio tracks, educators, therapists and researchers explore why children might have language and literacy difficulties, and how schools can work with psychologists to help these children develop key language and literacy skills. The interviews are introduced and contextualised by Professor David Messer of The Open University. The material forms part of The Open University course ED841 Understanding children's development and learning.
