A comprehensive and practical textbook for preparing teachers who will be working with students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities. -- Vassar Quarterly

Although information has been available in excellent training programs ... the need for such a textbook has long been apparent. -- Dyslexia Discourse

This is the first text on multisensory teaching that brings together information on research, theory, and clinical experience... -- Dyslexia Discourse

Format: Hardcover
In Multisensory Teaching of Basic Language Skills, Dr. Judith Birsh has succeeded in bringing together the expertise of a constellation of respected and well-known contributors to produce what will undoubtedly become a highly prized and much-used text/reference book in the field of dyslexia and learning differences. Calling on various authorities to write sections in their area(s) of greatest interest and strength, she has developed a greatly needed resource for understanding, teaching, assessing, and parenting those who have dyslexia and related disorders.
Beginning with the definition and characteristics of dyslexia, a discussion of the latest research in the field, and the need for all teachers to understand the structure of the English written code, the book gives the prospective reader an overview of the eighteen chapters by offering chapter summaries. Other aids for the reader include extensive references for each chapter; graphics and other illustrations; a glossary of key terms; and a most carefully organized appendix of materials and sources.
In an enlightening and forthright discussion of multisensory instruction, the authors of the first chapter address the issue of lack of research studies concerning the efficacy of multisensory teaching. They conclude, however, that there is theoretical support for this approach and that, until research is able to confirm or disprove the effectiveness of multisensory instruction, it behooves teachers to rely on their own experience and professional judgment, as well as on the professional judgment of others who, over the years, report student success when multisensory instruction is used.
The Chapter One discussion of multisensory methods provides the platform upon which the remainder of the book is built.

...this is a great book that I've searched for. It pulls tons of useful information about dyslexia into one spot. Only one warning I would send out to parents - this is a textbook not a "pop culture" book. I've found the reading slow going as I'm unfamiliar with many of terms and concepts as I'm not a linguist or teacher. Having said that, I belive I now understand how to help my daughter learn easier which will open many previously closed doors to her. The textbook is worth the effort!!

I could not wait to receive this book and when it came I was overwhelm by it. I will advise anyone who's interested in education to purchase this book. There are newer editions but I purchased the one that was more economical for me.

I was told at a workshop that this was a great book. I don't know because it never came. The other book came within 4 business days.
