Most people do not realize that dyslexia is more than just a reading problem. It is often accompanied by social, psychological, and even physical issues that can make many everyday tasks seem unmanageable. Whether you suffer from dyslexia yourself or are the parent of a dyslexic child, dealing with the overall challenges of this learning disorder can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, mainstream treatment focuses mainly on compensatory techniques and workarounds, not a cure, leaving dyslexics feeling hopeless and stuck. In her new book, Dr. Phyllis Books offers a new approach to dyslexia and a convincing reason to hope again. Drawing upon her vast experience and a wealth of scientific research, she declares that dyslexia can actually be reversed in a large number of cases.
Reversing Dyslexia begins by redefining dyslexia, offering the most comprehensive view of this problem yet. It describes dyslexia's common symptoms, lists its associated conditions, and details the many theories that surround this issue. It goes on to explain how the brain develops, revealing how an improperly functioning brain may be rewired and repaired through the right combination of therapies, all of which are described in detail. It then shows how important nutrition, exercise, play, and music are to learning ability, and concludes with invaluable advice on how to choose the right school for your dyslexic child.
By providing a modern perspective on dyslexia, this book lays the groundwork for significant improvements not only in reading but also in general learning ability, emotional stability, and psychological well-being. Having worked with thousands of children, parents, and educators, Dr. Books has spent over twenty-five years disproving the idea that dyslexia is a permanent condition. Reversing Dyslexia can teach you how to disprove it as well.
