Baker & Taylor Discusses learning disabilities, shares case studies of how children overcame those disabilities, and suggests teaching methods for dyslexic children in kindergarten through third grade
Blackwell North Amer Every dyslexic child can learn to read, write, and spell - thanks to this one-on-one, easy-to-use, instructional book. How to Teach Your Dyslexic Child to Read uses accessible terms, along with charts, graphics, and lesson plans. It is broken down into three parts. Part 1 discusses learning disabilities. Each problem is followed by a true case study of how a child overcame that disability. Part 2 reveals how a dyslexic child should be taught - from kindergarten through the third grade - step by step. It also gives detailed instructions for teaching phonics, spelling, and syllabication. Part 3 contains the pictures, charts and word lists that are an integral part of tutoring the child. Since each dyslexic is different, the parent or teacher must carefully determine how to structure lessons in order to connect with the child. How to Teach Your Dyslexic Child to Read teaches the tutor how to discover the child's learning pace; how to lengthen a youngster's short attention span; how much drill and review is necessary once a phonics concept has been introduced; how many vocabulary words the child should be asked to learn at one time; how many pages should be assigned to daily oral reading; how many words a child can learn to spell in a week, and remember how to spell when writing sentences; and more.
Baker & Taylor A highly organized guide for helping dyslexic children to read is broken down into three parts that discuss learning disabilities, alternative education methods, and teaching tools that are based on a phonics method.
