Book Description :

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.

Book Description :

Jordan's book is a valuable tool for those who work with and educate individuals with dyslexia. Now in its third edition, Overcoming Dyslexia in Children, Adolescents, and Adults tells the story of dyslexia in a positive, hopeful way. Overcoming Dyslexia leads the reader through simple, clear descriptions of the learning and social patterns of students who are dyslexic. The book summarizes in easy-to-understand language what science knows today about the causes of the different forms of dyslexia. All forms of dyslexia are described in detail. Illustrations of how dyslexia impacts classroom learning, social behavior, emotional maturity, job performance, and personal development are also provided. Chapter 1 summarizes remarkable new information about how genetic codes determine brain development and how differences in brain structure cause dyslexia. Chapter 2 explains the perceptual and emotional nature of dyslexia. Chapter 3 describes the problems of poor central vision for reading and attention deficit disorders that often exist beneath the surface of dyslexia. Chapters 4 through 6 describe the four most common subtypes of this learning difference: visual dyslexia, auditory dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. Chapter 7 describes the emotions, feelings, and moods that trip up struggling learners with failure and low self-confidence. Chapter 8 tells about the nonverbal learning disabilities and social-emotional learning disabilities that often accompany dyslexia. Chapter 8 also presents strategies for developing effective social skills and learning to live independently. Chapter 9 tells dynamic victory stories of how eight prominent adults overcame dyslexic challenges in their lives. Finally, the appendices provide assessment techniques to help teachers and parents identify types of dyslexia, attention deficits, and other kinds of differences that make classroom learning and social success difficult for 20% of our population.

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.

Book Description :

According to experts, Dyslexia is a specific learning disorder that involves difficulty reading. Testing and screening for dyslexia are available and are very important. Without proper diagnosis and instruction, dyslexia can lead to frustration, school failure, and low self-esteem.An assessment for dyslexia includes reading or writing while the tester looks for signs of dyslexia, such as adding, dropping, or changing words; pulling words from other lines, or reversing or transposing words and letters. While not diagnostic in itself, body language may provide a clue: A person with dyslexia may frequently clear their throat, tap a pencil, or fidget during the testing out of anxiety about performing the test.Dyslexia is a disorder present at birth and cannot be prevented or cured, but it can be managed with special instruction and support. Early intervention to address reading problems is important. Parents must understand that children with dyslexia can learn normally, but probably need to learn in different ways than children without the condition. Teaching should be individualized and may involve modeling letters and words in clay or other three-dimensional techniques to help the child learn letters and words.If you notice any of the signs of dyslexia, your child's doctor can help determine whether there are physical problems, such as vision problems, that are causing or contributing to your child's condition, and they can refer you to specialists who can diagnose and treat learning disorders. These may include an educational specialist, an educational psychologist, or a speech therapist.This book provides you with a clue on how to raise your dyslexic child from the cradle to adulthood, overcome challenges, achieve maximum productivity and excel in any life endeavour.
