Description

 – part of the How to Help, Understand and Support Children and Young People series of books

Published by Pavilion PublishingEffective Study and Learning offers a complete introduction to these critical yet frequently overlooked topics. Many young people exert considerable effort in ‘studying’ but still come away disappointed with the results, particularly when faced with traditional written exams. All too often, they fail to fulfil their potential not because of a lack of hard work, but because they have not mastered the study and learning techniques that are fundamental to success in education and eventually in the workplace. Highlighting why self-knowledge and understanding one’s own learning style and preferences are critical to success, Gavin Reid and Jennie Guise consider the skills and strategies required for effective study and successful learning – and how parents, carers, teachers and schools can help.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:

Gavin Reid is a psychologist, consultant and the author of more than thirty books in the field of dyslexia and learning. He lectures worldwide, and he has regular international consultancies. He has sat on government panels, has been engaged in several United Nations funded projects as a learning difficulties expert, and is Chair of the British Dyslexia Association Accreditation Board.

Jennie Guise is a psychologist and author. She has worked in research, and now in applied practice as the founder and Director of Dysguise Ltd. Her main interests are in identifying what will help individual learners to progress, and in helping to break down, or work around, the many and various barriers that can affect study and learning. She works collaboratively with educators to apply that knowledge in practical ways.
