BOOK EXCERPT:

This second resource book is part of a teaching programme based on the highly successful handbook ‘Overcoming Dyslexia’ by Hilary Broomfield and Margaret Combley (2nd Edition, Whurr 2003). The materials can be used after completing part one of the course or they can be used independently from the rest of the scheme. They can be used as part of the literacy hour or specialised support lessons. The approach taken is a multi-sensory one and the activities are suitable for learners of all ages. This fully photocopiable set of resources supports the learner in reading and spelling vowel digraphs and diphthongs, ‘soft’ ‘c’ and ‘g’, common ending such as ‘tion’ and ‘le’, suffixes, prefixes, multi-syllablic and contracted words. Those familiar with the ‘Overcoming Dyslexia’ handbook will recognise these from part two of its ‘step-by-step’ approach. The resources also cover the correct use of punctuation, including end of sentence marks, commas, speech marks and apostrophes, and the use of everyday research skills such as scanning and finding information in telephone directories and dictionaries. The materials include background information for the teacher, teaching and learning activities, guidance notes for parents and homework activities. There is also a separate section on assessment and planning. The programme is suitable for use by learning support assistants under the guidance of the teacher and is compatible with the requirements of the National Literacy Strategy from Year 1 to Year 3, with some aspects of Year 4.

BOOK EXCERPT:

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.

Dyslexia is a common diagnosable condition that is estimated to affect at least one child in ten. In its most usual form it is manifested as a difficulty in learning to read and write, but it is widely misunderstood and often mistaken for low intelligence or even laziness. Dr Beve Hornsby combines her experience as a psychologist, teacher and speech therapist in this informative and reassuring book for parents and teachers of children suffering from a disability no-one can see or understand, and offers advice on how to identify, tackle and eventually overcome dyslexia. Includes up-to-date information on Attention Deficit Disorder and the relevance of the latest Education Act.
