Gold Medal Winner in the Self-Help category of the 2015 Foreword Reviews' INDIEFAB Book of the Year Awards As Alais Winton knows, having dyslexia doesn't mean you're not bright; like her, you might just need a different way of looking at things. In this book, she lets you in on the learning techniques which work for her, and which you may not be taught at school. Offering solutions to common problems students with dyslexia face, Alais describes tried-and-tested techniques for succeeding with reading, spelling, memorising information and time management, and even a simple method to ensure you never misplace your learning tools (such as pencils and books) again. The strategies are ideal for use in the run-up to exams, helping you to become more organised, less stressed and better prepared. This is a must-read pocket guide for students with dyslexia aged 11 to 18, and will also be a helpful source of ideas for teachers, SENCOs and parents of teens with dyslexia.
If your young student (age 5 to 7) has had problems with speech, and is not grasping the concepts of reading and writing when compared to his or her peers, and/or there is a family relative with dyslexia, then your student may have dyslexia. I Can Read, books A & B, are reading and writing workbooks which provide lessons in phonics for children who are just beginning to learn to read. The methods used in these books are based on the Orton-Gillingham approach, in that every sound is taught in a cumulative manner with repetition. This is done so that poor readers, and those who are, or may be, dyslexic, will learn to read and write and not fall behind. Each lesson introduces a new sound followed by many exercises reinforcing the material just taught. Book A: the alphabet, consonants, vowels, consonant blends, FLOSS words, high frequency words, ch, sh, th, ck, ng, nk, VCV, oo, ou and ow as /ou/. Book B: ow as long o, ay, ar, er, ir, or, ur, oy, oi, long vowel teams, the letter y, words ending with ie, ew, long o words, long i words, qu, au, aw, alk, ct, ea as short e, protecting short vowels, and past tense words.
Educators have long known that many students rely on their sense of sight to take in information. When these children see information, rather than just hearing it, they are more likely to understand and remember what is being taught. These students are called visual learners. Many children fall into this category, especially those that are dyslexic or those that have an auditory processing disorder. Visual learners often have a hard time memorizing the multiplication facts. They understand the concept of multiplication, but are unable to easily remember the times tables. This book offers a different approach. Here, the multiplication facts are presented in a visual manner in order to provide a framework for the child to remember the fact.

Remarkable Results! Faster Brain Processing Speed. Better Recall & Memory. Improved Reading and Test Scores. And A LOT more fun than traditional phonics lessons! Brain Training consists of programs designed to improve brain processing speed, hemispheric integration between the right and left brain, as well as internal brain timing and sequencing. The exercises in this book are one method of hemispheric integration. While the right brain identifies the color, the left brain is utilized to read the numbers and words. As each exercise is done, the right and left brain must communicate to complete the task. This encourages the neurons to connect. Neurons that fire together wire together. Therefore, the more the exercises are done the stronger the neural connections, the quicker the brain's response. Pairing brain training with phonics is a natural way to make a difficult task easier. Reading difficulties can often be a result of left brain weakness. Using brain training exercises with phonics engages the right brain to assist with the task. It also benefits the student by improving memory, sequencing and brain processing speed. The results are often remarkable. Struggling students learn the material quicker and easier. They retain the information and have faster recall, resulting in higher academic achievement, better test scores and school success.
This comprehensive, practical resource gives educators at all levels essential information, techniques, and tools for understanding dyslexia and adapting teaching methods in all subject areas to meet the learning style, social, and emotional needs of students who have dyslexia.

Dyslexic teenagers face special problems - this book will help solve them. Dyslexia, involving problems with reading, writing, spelling, memory, organisation and time management, can affect people of all backgrounds and abilities. But most books on this subject are geared towards young children; advice for teenagers is thin on the ground. Yet dyslexic teenagers face special problems. They need to master complex study skills, deal with large amounts of revision, and cope with the demands of examinations. They may suffer from stress, anxiety and lack of confidence. Dyslexia: A Teenager's Guide helps young adults tackle these problems with strategies uniquely suited to their needs. Clearly and simply written by a leading expert in the field, the book helps with reading, writing, spelling and memory, as well as giving tips on how to take notes, organise study, deal with examinations and use IT. It also shows how to improve confidence, deal with stress, and build on the creative talent that many dyslexics possess.
The neurolearning-expert creators of the award-winning blog by the same name reveal the unique brain structure and organization of dyslexic individuals, identifying how the differences responsible for reading challenges also enable specific mechanical, artistic, narrative and dynamic talents.
