Dunson, who heads a company that provides language remediation services to students with language acquisition difficulties, provides parents, teachers, educational specialists, language specialists, and mainstream and special needs English departments with a systematic and forensic approach to helping students with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. The approach focuses on mastering the English language and providing a foundation for reading, writing, and spelling skills for students struggling with language acquisition, incorporating information on speech pathology throughout. He describes the development of reading skills and the components of reading; primary difficulties that prevent students from mastering decoding (dyslexia and central processing disorder); specialized interventions at school and home, such as assistive technology, prereading maps, picture tasks, phonemic awareness drills, and the Orton-Gillingham approach; how vowels, consonants, and sounds create words; the construction of the English language; and a structured plan for teachers and parents.
