What Dyslexia Help Handbook Readers Have Said: "Firstly, thank you so much for this book. As parents, who are clearly desperate, it is amazing how few resources one can get their hands on. I see this book as a tool for soooo many parents, not just homeschoolers. The majority of moms I talk to do not have the option of homeschooling their child and are literally at the school's mercy. And you clearly know, as I do, what their outcomes are. Your book gives parents specific things they can do to take charge of their child's education. So kuddos to you for taking the time to put this all in one place!" ~ K.C. "I am so amazed at your God-given wisdom. I was just so impressed with your logic I had to comment!! Thank you for the privilege of reading your book." ~ V.S. I've traveled this path with my sons. One of our public school administrators said my older son would probably "never read well" and told me to lower my expectations, but they were wrong! After implementing the right dyslexic solutions, my boys soared educationally. My son graduated from college Magna Cum Laude due to the help we gave him at home. You can find reading and academic success for your child too, even if he has severe dyslexia like my son. Buy now if you want to start immediately on your path to overcoming dyslexia in your child.

“A success story . . . proof that one can rise above the disease and defy its so-called limitations on the brain.”—Daily Beast Despite winning the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 2008, Philip Schultz could never shake the feeling of being exiled to the "dummy class" in school, where he was largely ignored by his teachers and peers and not expected to succeed. Not until many years later, when his oldest son was diagnosed with dyslexia, did Schultz realize that he suffered from the same condition. In his moving memoir, Schultz traces his difficult childhood and his new understanding of his early years. In doing so, he shows how a boy who did not learn to read until he was eleven went on to become a prize-winning poet by sheer force of determination. His balancing act—life as a member of a family with not one but two dyslexics, countered by his intellectual and creative successes as a writer—reveals an inspiring story of the strengths of the human mind.

I commend Ms. Lature for her passion and drive to help dyslexic children and adults and for her work to educate others about the challenges inherent in this neurological disorder... —Phil Bryant, Governor of the State of Mississippi Teachers and parents of dyslexic children will welcome this intriguing memoir... —Marcia Henry, PhD, Professor Emerita, San Jose State University In this book, Lature mingles relevant information about dyslexia with humor as she shares her experiences with students from primary grades through adulthood. As a teacher of over thirty-five years and as an advocate for persons with dyslexia—her experience and insight is invaluable. Lature has seen the blocked potential and even abuse that some persons with dyslexia have suffered. While the author has dealt with professionals who deny the existence of dyslexia, she has pushed forward with vigor and passion, sometimes at great personal sacrifice. Dyslexia: A Teacher’s Journey gives you vital information and advice on what dyslexia is, and how you can find help for yourself or a loved one. The back of the book lists websites, books, and organizations that can help individuals or families dealing with dyslexia. Ruth’s fight for the educational rights of dyslexics will make you laugh, inspire you, and most importantly inform you of the role you can play in helping all persons with dyslexia. Her story can help present and future generations glimpse the past, best live in the present, and plan for the future.
