    Dyslexia is more than the reversal of symbols by the brain. Did you know that most dyslexics can utilize the brain’s ability to alter and create perceptions, think mainly in pictures instead of words, have vivid imaginations, and are more curious than average? According to author Ronald Davis, “From these [characteristics] the true gift of dyslexia can emerge—the gift of mastery. The gift of mastery develops in many ways and in many areas. For Albert Einstein, it was physics; for Walt Disney, it was art; for Greg Louganis, it was athletic prowess.”

    Davis, a dyslexic, is the founder of the Reading Research Council’s Dyslexia Correction Center. He believes, “dyslexia is not the result of brain damage or nerve damage. Nor is it caused by a malformation of the brain, inner ear or eyeballs. Dyslexia is a product of thought and a special way of reacting to the feeling of confusion.” This book provides a lot of information about dyslexia—what it is, how it affects learning, and detailed procedures on how to handle the difficulties of this learning disorder. Procedures used require two people, the dyslexic individual and a coach or helper. 260 pgs, pb. Anh

    Dianne Craft is well known for her successful approaches for equipping families (and teachers) to overcome problems faced by their struggling, but bright learners. Designed for home use, this manual provides an overview of how the brain works, right brain vs. left brain traits, detailed information on the four identified learning gates, brain training exercises, suggestions for a weekly sequence plus daily lesson plans for struggling learners.

    Overwhelmed yet? Don't be. Mrs. Craft has created an easy to use resource that may save you hundreds of dollars in occupational therapy. Beginning with a clear introduction to brain integration therapy she walks you through a brief overview of struggling learners, the importance of crawling and understanding the function of the brain with a focus on the role of the left and right brain.

    With the foundation of the importance of brain integration put forth, she then introduces us to the four learning gates: Visual Processing, Visual/Motor (writing), Auditory Processing, and the Attention/Focusing/Behavior. Observable characteristics of the blocked gates are presented alongside simple activities to determine if your child presents with a blocked gate in one of these areas. For example, a parent might recognize that their child who is struggling to learn to read has a blocked Visual Processing gate if the child needs to underline or point to each word as they read or reverses letters (or words) while reading. While the manual focuses on therapies to improve blocks in the first three gates, Mrs. Craft does offer detailed information on correcting a blocked Attention/Focusing/Behavior gate in her Biology of Behavior audio CD series, which we are pleased to offer separately.

    The remaining sections in the manual are dedicated to explaining a variety of exercises to improve brain integration. These include detailed explanations and step by step instructions paired with numerous black and white photo demonstrations, which leads me into one of the most valuable aspects of this manual: the detailed schedule suggestions.

    The suggested schedule is divided into three areas: Brain Training Sequences designed to be done daily Monday through Thursday; the once a week Brain Training Session which provides exercises specific to one of the blocked gates, and daily lesson plans for reading, writing and math. Parents will find time spent in each subject varies but parents should anticipate 30-45 minutes daily on each subject.

    All in all, this is a user friendly guide for home use. The exercises are well explained and laid out. The background information provides the parent with a deeper understanding of our children with learning glitches. Detailed diagnostic checklists, a diagnostic reading grade placement test, case studies and the optional online support from Mrs. Craft provide parents with necessary tools to best meet the needs of their unique learner. One caveat I would make is regarding the time commitment necessary to gain full benefit of the brain training. The program described will be time intensive for the parent, and the author acknowledges that a parent's willingness to devote a consistent and fairly intense effort is vital to success. If you are looking for something more specific in scope, we also offer Dianne Craft's Teaching the Right Brained Child DVD and Smart Kids Who Hate to Write DVD. Mrs. Craft's materials can be used independently as standalone products, or use them together as they complement each other well. There is minor overlap between the Brain Integration Manual and her workshop DVDs, but there is not a great deal of redundancy and using them together provides parents with additional tools. 2013 Edition. Spiral bound with included 18"x 12" Writing Eight Exercise template. 151 pgs. ~ Deanne

      Not a traditional comic book, this Thinking Tree journal contains lots of cute and appealing illustrations to color and simple addition/subtraction problems to solve. This journal provides math practice with no instruction. Some pages have a simple grid with the assignment to design “something,” while others ask you to write a story based on a visual prompt. As a fun twist, students “solve math mysteries” instead of problems. Later in the book are several pages with 8 comic book style panels (on a 2 page spread). Two are filled in; you complete the rest. Black & white, 8x8.5”, 170 pp. ~ Sara

    When we added the AVKO Sequential Spelling program several years ago it was because we had received countless requests from our customers. Since then it has consistently garnered strong positive feedback and rave reviews. In this book, the author of that program, Don McCabe, provides not only his autobiographical information but also the process whereby the AVKO program and methodology was "discovered". The book's lengthy subtitle - a dyslexic tells how luck enabled him to learn to read and how his blissful ignorance and stubbornness enabled him to discover an easy, common sense way to teach other dyslexics to read and write - pretty much nails the contents. If you have a student with language issues - almost any language issues (and the definitions for dyslexic are just about that vague) - then you will find help and hope in this book. The author's personal story - from birth to near death - is told in a very readable, tongue-in-cheek manner. Throughout his story he points to the life experiences that illustrate a particular principle or insight. However, if you don't want to know his story, the author helpfully points you to the particular chapter where you can find out what dyslexia really is and how you can best "identify," "treat," or "prevent" it or to the chapter where you will find the most information for actually helping a dyslexic student. You can expect to find the same practical, word family and pattern approach to language that characterizes Sequential Spelling as well as a wealth of educational experience and expertise. 288 pgs, pb.
