"The book helps teachers to develop an understanding of the intervention and research process as a whole, supporting colleagues who may wish to design and monitor their own small-scale projects. In summary this book provides excellent value for money, and through a wide readership will play a major part in helping to overcome difficulties faced by children who struggle to learn to read."
