Dyslexia A Beginner s Overview and Guide to Overcoming Dyslexia Excerpt :

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.

Praise for What is Dyslexia?: '...informative, based on the latest research and compassionate - three qualities that make this a must read for parents and children struggling with dyslexia.' - Paul M. Quinlan, Ph.D. from The Curtis Blake Center Praise for An Introduction to Dyslexia for Parents and Professionals by the same author: 'Hultquist writes in such measured, clear and uncluttered prose that no one can take the journey from diagnosis to remediation without feeling that one is in the hands of someone who really understands the issues surrounding a dyslexia diagnosis, not only for the one diagnosed but also for the whole family and the professionals working with them.' - Dyslexia Contact, Vol. 26, Feb 2007 What is Dyslexia? is designed to help adults explain dyslexia to children. The author provides information about all the most common types of dyslexia: trouble with sounds, trouble remembering how letters and words look, trouble finding words, and mixed dyslexia. He deals with the basic facts and adopts a style which is accessible to children without talking down to them. The book includes clear examples which children will be able to understand, as well as activities for parents to do with their children. The author emphasises that everyone has strengths and weaknesses and that having dyslexia is okay.

Chapters cover key topics such as: the nature of spelling and the impact of the National Literacy Strategy the strengths and weaknesses of existing schemes for handwriting the definitions of dyslexia and how common spelling errors by dyslexics are made making effective links between strategic assessment and strategic interventions in schools problem-based learning, underpinned by plenty of casestudies and real life classroom examples. Written by a well-known author in the field of literacy and dyslexia, this is a core text that will interest teachers, teacher educators, and undergraduate and postgraduate students in education and inclusion.

Lookout Excerpt :

A page-turning memoir about a young woman's grueling, revelatory summers working alone in a remote lookout tower and her eyewitness account of the increasingly unpredictable nature of wildfire in the Canadian north. While growing up in Peace River, Alberta, Trina Moyles heard many stories of Lookout Observers--strange, eccentric types who spent five-month summers alone, climbing 100-foot high towers and watching for signs of fire in the surrounding boreal forest. But Moyles never thought she could do that. Craving a deeper sense of purpose, she left northern Alberta to pursue a decade-long career in global humanitarian work. After three years in East Africa, and newly engaged, Trina returned to Peace River with a plan to sponsor her fiance, Akello's, immigration to Canada. Despite her fear of being alone in the woods, she applied for a seasonal lookout position and got the job. Thus began Trina's first summer as one of a handful of lookouts scattered throughout Alberta, with only a farm dog, Holly, to keep her company. While searching for smoke, Trina unravels under the pressure of a long-distance relationship--and a dawning awareness of the environmental crisis that climate change is producing in the boreal. Through megafires, lightning storms, and stunning encounters with wildlife, she learns to survive at the fire tower by forging deep connections with nature and with an extraordinary community of people dedicated to wildfire detection and combat. In isolation, she discovers a kind of self-awareness--and freedom--that only solitude can deliver. Lookout is a riveting story of loss, transformation, and belonging to oneself, layered with an eyewitness account of the destructive and regenerative power of wildfire in our northern forests.
