What Dyslexia Help Handbook Readers Have Said: "Firstly, thank you so much for this book. As parents, who are clearly desperate, it is amazing how few resources one can get their hands on. I see this book as a tool for soooo many parents, not just homeschoolers. The majority of moms I talk to do not have the option of homeschooling their child and are literally at the school's mercy. And you clearly know, as I do, what their outcomes are. Your book gives parents specific things they can do to take charge of their child's education. So kuddos to you for taking the time to put this all in one place!" ~ K.C. "I am so amazed at your God-given wisdom. I was just so impressed with your logic I had to comment!! Thank you for the privilege of reading your book." ~ V.S. I've traveled this path with my sons. One of our public school administrators said my older son would probably "never read well" and told me to lower my expectations, but they were wrong! After implementing the right dyslexic solutions, my boys soared educationally. My son graduated from college Magna Cum Laude due to the help we gave him at home. You can find reading and academic success for your child too, even if he has severe dyslexia like my son. Buy now if you want to start immediately on your path to overcoming dyslexia in your child.

Bringing together practice in the areas of multisensory teaching, whole language and phonological awareness training, this text offers a structured programme that integrates skills teaching into real reading and writing. Although it is intended as a teacher-friendly hands on approach, it is rooted in recent research into the development of reading and writing, and the causes of literacy difficulties. The authors use the model of reading set out by Marilyn Jager Adams in her book Beginning to Read as the framework for their integrated approach. They also draw from work that connects literacy and language difficulties, and that seeks common ground with communication therapists and speech scientists.

Dyslexia is a learning disorder generally characterized by reading difficulty. It is more common than what most people think. Parents are usually distraught when they have children diagnosed with dyslexia. They worry about whether their children will be able to function well in society. Most teachers, once they find out that one of the children in their class has this condition, are usually supportive. Although not all teachers received training on how to handle children with dyslexia, most of them are aware of the condition and know how to give adequate support in the classroom. The good news is that dyslexia is a manageable disorder. This condition is not a prediction of failure. In fact, many successful adults are actually dyslexic, and their situation does not deter their success in life. With the support of parents and teachers as well as other people around them, people with dyslexia are able to live normally and even thrive in life. Research has proven that there are different ways to manage dyslexia and parents and teachers can help children manage their condition through various means.Dyslexia: A Beginner's Overview and Guide to Overcoming Dyslexia will give relevant information on dyslexia to help everyone understand it better, and give strategies and ways to help children manage this condition.
