Teaching recommendations

Use of CoPS does not imply any obligation to follow a particular line of teaching, and teachers, as professionals, will naturally wish to use their own judgement regarding what is, and is not, suitable for any given student. Nevertheless, it is strongly recommended that teachers read the teaching advice provided in this manual, as it is likely that they will find ideas and strategies that they had not previously considered. This is especially likely if the teacher is not very experienced in working with students who have specific learning difficulties.

The British Dyslexia Association also publishes information on recommended software and teaching materials (www.bdadyslexia.org.uk).
