From Barrington Stoke publisher

There can be many reasons why a child doesn’t develop good literacy skills ‘first time round’. Our approach is designed by experts to combat these factors:

  • Dyslexia, which can make it hard to recognise and remember words and letters. Our font gives each letter a distinct shape and encourages the eye onwards. Our layout makes sure there’s no crowding. Our paper minimises confusing show-through.
  • Irlen Syndrome, where words and letters can seem to ‘jump around’. Our tinted pages reduce glare and visual stress, and can still be used with coloured overlays.
  • Short attention spans, hyperactivity and simple reluctance can stop kids picking up a book. Our list includes lots of humour, sport and action themes and we use fast-moving openings and cliffhangers to reel them in and keep them reading.
  • Low self-esteem can impact heavily on reading confidence. We match content and design appropriate to a reader’s actual age with language at a younger level. Crucially, our authors are the mainstream bestsellers their peers are also reading.
  • EAL learners can find complex literary conventions confusing. We reduce these, and pack our books with speech. Lots of titles have illustration to help with understanding.
