To Read or Not to Read
Answers to All your Questions About DyslexiaBook - 1998
Dyslexia is a disorder that affects over 15 percent of the American population and knows no age, gender, or class boundaries. To Read or Not to Read, written by a former journalist who now works as a learning specialist, is the first comprehensive book for a general audience about this disorder. It covers all ages and stages of diagnosis and gives several examples of remediation. The author explains what it's like to live with dyslexia through anecdotes about well-known dyslexics, including Winston Churchill and Nelson Rockefeller. She also tells stories of her own students, showing how individually focused programs work with each of them. Daphne M. Hurford explores what can be done to help dyslexics by evaluating the different educational programs and teaching methods available. She also provides a long list of reliable institutions that have helped dyslexics and their families.
