Recently I was introduced to a DVD full of resources from Dr Stewart Sykes which will be of great usefulness to teachers and parents, particularly teachers and parents of gifted and twice exceptional students.
The DVD is organised into documents in PDF format and contains
- Basic definitions, conceptual frameworks, notes and references
- Psychological and educational strategies and interventions
Each document presents topics central to general and special education as well as areas important in developmental, educational and clinical psychology.
The Parenting document, while specifically prepared for parents, should also be helpful for teachers and psychologists.
The general format of most documents is outlined at http://www.docsykes.com/
The section topics are
- Learning readiness
- Early learning essentials
- Written expression
- Study skills
11. Learning disability
13. Developmental and behavioural problems
Doc Sykes also offers much valuable information on his website http://www.docsykes.com/ which is freely available and can be copied and printed provided the copyright text is retained.
The DVD can be purchased from Doc Sykes website at http://www.docsykes.com/purchasedvd.htm
