About the Author

Yvonna Graham, M.Ed spent 20 years studying methods and research surrounding reading and dyslexia, propelled by the need, first, to teach her own daughter to read, and then in order to teach other children who found the classroom methods, or even the time-honored Orton-Gillingham methods insufficient for success. She eventually started and still directs Mumbling Marmot Tutoring in Durango, CO which places specialized tutors with students of all ages and needs. Co-author Dr. Alta E. Graham, was the daughter who struggled to learned to read, and now reads 3 times faster than her teacher! She's a music professor and also tutors reading and math. Her insight as a dyslexic learner and a scholar adds a crucial depth to this book. Both authors hope the book provides a well-lighted path to lead children and parents who have struggled with reading.

Format: Paperback
The tool kit section of the book is just that--different things to try that the authors have found helpful for themselves and other people they've worked with. I thought the explanations and background information were fascinating. I'm not currently teaching kids to read (although I have in the past). It almost made me want to go back to it just to try some of these things out!

The tool kit part of the book is great, but what really stood out for me was the introduction by Alta Graham about the word, "despite." It has challenged me to think about the ways our words put limitations on others instead of seeing their gifts. Ultimately this book is about developing the gifts of those who are often simply labeled and set aside.

I would point out that if you buy the kindle version, it is readable on a black and white reader, but some of the text boxes are harder to distinguish. The book really is much better on a color tablet.

This is indeed a "Tool Kit!" The book is packed with ideas and tips that are unusual and creative solutions to assist dyslexic learners in a wide range of tasks. A handy reference to have on hand, each chapter can be accessed independently as needed. Great resource!

Despite having several brilliant and dyslexic friends, I really knew next to nothing about dyslexia. This book not only changed that but gave me a concrete resource that I as a pastor can share with friends, teachers, tutors and parishioners. I was inspired to learn how a "disability" can be reframed as a gift. Thanks Alta & Yvonna!
Full disclosure: I read this book because I am a relation of the authors, but I am glad I did and would not have reviewed it differently if we weren't related. It is a truly insightful, scholarly and practical tool.

Written very simply but effectively. I have already employed reading strategy to help my older son with great results. Would recommend this as part of your journey to understanding dyslexia.

This book highlights specific needs of severely dyslexic children and clearly explains different methods of teaching. It also explains how other things influence people with dyslexic.

I am both a mother of a child with dyslexia and also a tutor for other dyslexic children. This book was very readable and the method in here can be easily applied, I can see it working with certain children that I work with...highly recommend this as a tool for helping dyslexic children
