DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Dyslexia is a learning disorder generally characterized by reading difficulty. It is more common than what most people think. Parents are usually distraught when they have children diagnosed with dyslexia. They worry about whether their children will be able to function well in society. Most teachers, once they find out that one of the children in their class has this condition, are usually supportive. Although not all teachers received training on how to handle children with dyslexia, most of them are aware of the condition and know how to give adequate support in the classroom. The good news is that dyslexia is a manageable disorder. This condition is not a prediction of failure. In fact, many successful adults are actually dyslexic, and their situation does not deter their success in life. With the support of parents and teachers as well as other people around them, people with dyslexia are able to live normally and even thrive in life. Research has proven that there are different ways to manage dyslexia and parents and teachers can help children manage their condition through various means.Dyslexia: A Beginner's Overview and Guide to Overcoming Dyslexia will give relevant information on dyslexia to help everyone understand it better, and give strategies and ways to help children manage this condition.

Jordan's book is a valuable tool for those who work with and educate individuals with dyslexia.

Illustrations of how dyslexia impacts classroom learning, social behavior, emotional maturity, job performance, and personal development are also provided. Chapter 1 summarizes remarkable new information about how genetic codes determine brain development and how differences in brain structure cause dyslexia. Chapter 2 explains the perceptual and emotional nature of dyslexia. Chapter 3 describes the problems of poor central vision for reading and attention deficit disorders that often exist beneath the surface of dyslexia. Chapters 4 through 6 describe the four most common subtypes of this learning difference: visual dyslexia, auditory dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia. Chapter 7 describes the emotions, feelings, and moods that trip up struggling learners with failure and low self-confidence. Chapter 8 tells about the nonverbal learning disabilities and social-emotional learning disabilities that often accompany dyslexia. Chapter 8 also presents strategies for developing effective social skills and learning to live independently. Chapter 9 tells dynamic victory stories of how eight prominent adults overcame dyslexic challenges in their lives. Finally, the appendices provide assessment techniques to help teachers and parents identify types of dyslexia, attention deficits, and other kinds of differences that make classroom learning and social success difficult for 20% of our population.
