Back cover copy

"This is a wonderful reference book for parents of children with dyslexia. It's the kind of book they've been asking for. I have been recommnending it to parents as well as teachers. The interviews with parents, students and adults with dyslexia are one of the strengths of this book. It makes the plight of dyslexic very real and gives the reader insight into their struggles. Parents can gain a sense of support and realize they are not alone in their efforts to help their child, and teachers are continually reminded of the profound effect their teaching style and their words have on students."--Heddy Christenson, Director, Eagle Mountain School How to Reach and Teach has the best definition we found, and the first five chapters about diagnosis, special education, intervention, and principle of instruction guided us through the very stressful, and very difficult meetings with school officials. No parent of a dyslexic child should be without it. It is our "bible." We have the strategies to help our child learn reading, handwriting, spelling, writing, and math. We now understand so much about the problems with everyday skills like telling time, staying on task, inability to remember money, and keeping track of school work. Throughout this book are wonderful interviews with parents, educators, and students with dyslexia. Reading these interviews helped us see that we are not alone and that there is hope."--Angie Wilson Hood, a parent How to Reach and Teach Children & Teens with Dyslexia provides parents and teachers with everything that's needed to help students with dyslexia flourish in school and in their everyday lives, and to prepare them for their careers. Included are over 50 full-page activity sheets. "The Ten Principles of Instruction" presents valuable techniques to deal with reading, handwriting, spelling, math, and creative writing challenges. The author also shows how to apply these principles to social studies, science, art, music, and physical education.
