T&L 2900: Overcoming Dyslexia (Audio Book Study)

Dyslexia is the most common learning disorder on the planet, affecting about one in five individuals, regardless of age or gender. Now a world-renowned expert gives us a substantially updated and augmented edition of her classic work: drawing on an additional fifteen years of cutting-edge research, offering new information on all aspects of dyslexia and reading problems, and providing the tools that parents, teachers, and all dyslexic individuals need. This new edition also offers:
  • New material on the challenges faced by dyslexic individuals across all ages
  • Rich information on ongoing advances in digital technology that have dramatically increased dyslexics' ability to help themselves
  • New chapters on diagnosing dyslexia, choosing schools and colleges for dyslexic students, the co-implications of anxiety, ADHD, and dyslexia, and dyslexia in post-menopausal women
  • Extensively updated information on helping both dyslexic children and adults become better readers, with a detailed home program to enhance reading
  • Evidence-based universal screening for dyslexia as early as kindergarten and first grade - why and how 
  • New information on how to identify dyslexia in all age ranges
  • Exercises to help children strengthen the brain areas that control reading
  • Ways to raise a child's self-esteem and reveal her strengths
  • Stories of successful men, women, and young adults who are dyslexic
