Publisher Description

Did you know at least one out of six people in the world is on the dyslexia spectrum? Did you also know that there are methods that are able to "rewire" the dyslexic's brain so that most people suffering the frustrations of dyslexia can not only learn to read...they can learn to read well? Is someone you know struggling with reading? Don't let that happen!

"Crushing Dyslexia" is the result of Carol's 40 years of experience working with struggling readers. After learning Orton-Gillingham methods to help her own children, she adapted them to her public school classroom. The results were astounding! Carol kept the data for any fourth-grader whose reading scores on the beginning-of-the-year tests were at least one grade level. After learning with the accommodations and techniques Carol used, they averaged a 2 and ½ year jump by the end of the year!

This book is not another reading program--it is a book full of simple, multisensory, logical, and highly effective methods that can be applied to almost any quality reading program to make it much more appropriate for teaching a reading struggler. Every idea, accommodation, and technique in this book is Orton-Gillingham-based, and has been tested by Carol Fitzpatrick with her own students. They really work!
