Doc Sykes Psycho-educational Resource DVD

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
  • Checklists
  • 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

  1. Introduction
  2. Bio
  3. Learning readiness
  4. Early learning essentials
  5. Reading
  6. Spelling
  7. Written expression
  8. Mathematics
  9. Study skills

10. Exceptionality

11. Learning disability

12. Dyslexia

13. Developmental and behavioural problems

14. Giftedness

15. Parenting

16. FAQs

 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
