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.

Trigger point therapy is one of the fastest-growing and most effective pain therapies in the world. Medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists are all beginning to use this technique to relieve patients’ formerly undiagnosable muscle and joint pain, both conditions that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits. This book addresses the problem of myofascial trigger points—tiny contraction knots that develop in a muscle when it is injured or overworked. Restricted circulation and lack of oxygen in these points cause referred pain. Massage of the trigger is the safest, most natural, and most effective form of pain therapy. Trigger points create pain throughout the body in predictable patterns characteristic to each muscle, producing discomfort ranging from mild to severe. Trigger point massage increases circulation and oxygenation in the area and often produces instant relief. The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook, Third Edition, has made a huge impact among health professionals and the public alike, becoming an overnight classic in the field of pain relief. This edition includes a new chapter by the now deceased author, Clair Davies’ daughter, Amber Davies, who is passionate about continuing her father’s legacy. The new edition also includes postural assessments and muscle tests, an illustrated index of symptoms, and clinical technique drawings and descriptions to assist both practitioners and regular readers in assessing and treating trigger points. If you have ever suffered from, or have treated someone who suffers from myofascial trigger point pain, this is a must-have book.
