'Radiates optimism and encouragement and offers a programme for success' Disability Now
A breakthrough book that gives dyslexics the key to literacy, The Gift of Dyslexia helps you understand the disorder that inhibits the reading and writing of fifteen per cent of children and adults - and also gifts them with greater levels of creativity and multidimensional thinking.
Based on personal experience of dyslexia, Ronald D. Davis offers insights into the learning problems and stigmas faced by those with the condition, and provides tried and tested techniques for overcoming and correcting it with his Davis Procedures, now used in over 40 countries worldwide.
Covering reading, writing, diagnosis and guidelines for teaching dyslexic children and adults, this is an invaluable guide for dyslexics and their teachers and loved ones.
