There are a lot of children (and adults) who struggle with reading. Some are helped by their schools, some are not.
In this short booklet, Pamela Brookes shares some of the basic information she wishes she'd had when she was first trying to figure out how to help her child learn to read.
Teaching A Struggling Reader: One Mom's Experience with Dyslexia is filled with links to informational and product resources for parents or teachers. It is geared to people who want to educate themselves in the methods that are effective in teaching those with dyslexia. It also contains photos demonstrating basic techniques like "Tapping" (using one's fingers to aid in sounding out words) and "Making your bed" to differentiate between "b" and "d."
This Third Edition includes new information and new links including the social and economic impacts of illiteracy. It also contains information on Early Intervention, including what parents can do if they suspect their young child may have dyslexia during the toddler and preschool years, and a section on What if It's NOT Dyslexia.
This is a booklet that can be read in one sitting. However, there are ample links to provide an even greater experience. The hyperlinks are active in the e-book format.
All DOG ON A LOG Books follow a systematic, structured literacy/Orton-Gillingham based phonics sequence.
