Overcoming Dyslexia - Science Based Program for Reading Problems
Overcoming Dyslexia - Science Based Program for Reading Problems
problems that "plague American children today". Shaywitz explains in concrete well-explained terms the most recent scientific breakthroughs - many of which have come from her own laboratory. She demystifies the subject of reading difficulties and explains how a child can be helped to become a good reader. She discusses early diagnosis in young children as well as the process of diagnosing older children, young adults, and adults. She also explains why some bright adults can read only very slowly and what they can do about it. Recent research, including new brain imaging techniques, is uncovering the mechanisms underlying dyslexia and has led to descriptions of effective treatment for each age group. Dr. Shaywitz is very skilled in explaining these results and providing concrete instructions for parents and teachers to use, describing the instructions in a year-by-year, grade-by-grade and step-by-step manner. Stephen Cannell calls Overcoming Dyslexia "a state-of-the-art tool kit for parents and teachers of dyslexic children. No one understands dyslexia better, or explains it more clearly. Combining cutting-edge science, practicality and common sense, Overcoming Dyslexia strips away the confusion and tells us exactly what we need to know about diagnosis, programs, and accommodations. A must-read for any parent or teacher of a struggling reader." Parents and teachers are empowered not only with a deeper understanding of dyslexia but also with a battle plan to overcome it. Shaywitz emphatically states that ignorance is the greatest impediment to a dyslexic child's success in reading. Overcoming Dyslexia provides a blueprint for freeing teachers and parents from this ignorance. 2005
