Publisher's summary

The Understanding Dyslexia Course helps students to better comprehend dyslexia, as well as how it can affect a child's self-esteem, how to identify it, and importantly it covers the many ways in which teaching can be adapted to help a dyslexic learner.

Unless you yourself or someone close to you has dyslexia or if you teach those with the learning difficulty, it is often misunderstood and can actually go undiagnosed for some time, as it is seen as an "invisible" difficulty.

Developmental dyslexia (more commonly known as simply "dyslexia") is a specific learning difficulty that affects the way the brain processes language, making it difficult for those affected to acquire skills in reading, writing and spelling, though it does not affect a person's intelligence. This course begins by introducing students to dyslexia, how those with the condition are affected, and the causes.

We discuss how those with dyslexia are often affected by more than just the one condition. Here other learning difficulties are outlined and students will learn how they can recognize and support a child with these various conditions.

As students begin to understand how a child with dyslexia may be feeling, the course also shows how to support children emotionally, with tools and techniques to increase their self-worth and regain positivity.

You will learn how to identify and diagnose dyslexia in both children and adults. This includes common behaviors that can be noted in undiagnosed children, including how they often hide symptoms, as well as various tests that can be undertaken.

Great for parent

As a parent of a child recently diagnosed with dyslexia, this course/book was very helpful and insightful. I hope to incorporate many of the strategies suggested within the book with my own child. It also gave me an excellent understanding and a few 'aha!' moments when listening to various symptoms and difficulties that my son has to endure. I highly recommend any parent of a dyslexic child read this book.
