Beschreibung"At last! A book about dyslexic thinking by one who is dyslexic, and for fellow dyslexic people... I would recommend this book to any dyslexic and non-dyslexic person. It is a dyslexic friendly book."
Like other dyslexics, Ronald Davis had unusual gifts of creativity and imagination, but couldn't function probably at school and it wasn't until he was an adult that he discovered techniques that allowed him to read easily. Written from personal experience of dyslexia, this breakthrough book offers unique insights into the learning problems and stigmas faced by those with the condition, and provides the author's own tried and tested techniques for overcoming and correcting it.
"What do Cher, Leonardo da Vinci, Whoopi Goldberg, and Walt Disney all have in common? Dyslexia. Though one may think they achieved success in spite of their disability, Ronald D. Davis... says it's because of it... Once students remove obstacles to learning, they are free to capitalize on the innate gifts dyslexia can bring."
The experience of being dyslexic is fully explained, from its early development to how it becomes gradually entrenched as a child comes to rely on non-verbal perception. Davis demonstrates that people with dyslexia have special talents of perception, imagination and intuition, which can be used to enable them to master the problems they have with reading and mathematics. He shows how the dyslexic mind works and how problems are compounded through failure and frustration.
Setting out practical step-by-step techniques, using visualisation and multisensory learning, Ronald Davis brings help to the 15% of children and adults who struggle with reading and writing because of dyslexia. In this revised and expanded edition of his classic work Ronald Davis brings real help to people who have dyslexia.
"Presented in a dyslexia friendly style... I would recommend this book, both for people with dyslexia and parents and teachers. It describes the problems so well, but even more importantly it radiates optimism and encouragement and offers a programme for success."
