Dr. Henry received her doctorate in educational psychology from Stanford University. Prior to her retirement in 1995, she was a professor in the Division of Special Education at San Jose State University, where she taught and directed the Center for Educational Research on Dyslexia.

Beverly J. Wolf, M.Ed., Director, Slingerland® Institute for Literacy, 12729 Northup Way, Suite 1, Bellevue, Washington 98005

Ms. Wolf received her M.Ed. in education at Seattle Pacific University and brings to this collaborative effort experience as a classroom teacher, principal of an elementary school for children with dyslexia, Dean of Faculty for the Slingerland® Institute for Literacy, and an educational consultant providing professional development nationally and locally on structured language teaching.

Ms. Wolf is a member of the Council of Advisors of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA), a past secretary and board member of IDA, the recipient of the John and Beth Slingerland Award from the Slingerland® Institute, the Beth Slingerland Award from the Puget Branch of the Orton Dyslexia Society (WABIDA), and the Outstanding Educator Award from the Renton School District. Through her professional experiences she has had the good fortune to hold the hands of teachers whose professional expertise and experience helped shaped her own work as she in turn shared with them. Ms. Wolf is inspired by her ongoing work with the next generation of teachers. They stimulate her and motivate her to continue to develop materials that make teaching and learning exciting and fun. As she does, she reminds others that students with learning disabilities benefit from the collaboration of many professionals sharing with each other, as captured in this quotation from Hellman and Feibleman (1984, p. xx): "It goes in a circle and always has, like a child's dance of ring around the rosy. If I am any good, the person holding my hand has a chance of being even better."

This is not a book you pick up at the store to read for pleasure. This is a book for a parent looking for answers the school doesn't have. This is a book for a classroom teacher trying to implement the new ELA common core standards. This is a book for the reading specialist in charge of making sure struggling readers can succeed on tough state assessments. This is a book for the special education teacher, whose students don't respond to instruction the way other students do. This book is for the speech therapist to help students connect oral language with the written word. This book is for everymember of a student's IEP team to guarantee that students are quickly and accurately diagnosed with reading disabilities and that appropriate plans are developed to ensure success for each and every student. If this book is for you, you will find pleasure in the knowledge that you can provide the best possible programming for students who find reading unbearable.

I am a special education teacher in a district that can't afford "specialists" so I had to try to learn as much about reading as I could to try to help my students. I was expecting multi-sensory to involve more movement. There kinesthetic element refers to the movement of the jaw when pronouncing various phonemes. The book is 600 + pages and I read all but the two chapters that didn't readily apply to me in my middle school setting. The principles explained in this book that I've used so far have been helpful and effective.

The depth and breadth of information contained in these pages is guarunteed to alter the practices of even the most veteran teachers. Teachers will learn the specifics for incorporating multisensory teaching into their daily routines. Explicit examples make the strategies easy to use in the classroom. The immediate payoff is evident in increased student learning. This should be a requirement for any preservice teacher and those who have been in the field for a while.

The must have for multisensory teaching- Chapter by chapter this book breaks it down and provides research, methods and instruction for multisensory teaching. Great for new teachers or novice teachers looking to expand their teaching skills.

I ordered this book because it was a required text book for one of my M.Ed. Reading classes. I found this book to be very helpful and full of easily applicable information. Several of the chapter have specific activities that promote essential skills in fun and engaging ways. All the information in this book is well researched and proven methods that promote language skills in learning. Also, the multisensory aspect ensures that students are learning in a way that is easy for them to remember. I plan on keeping this text book next to my desk as I plan lesson because it is a valuable tool to make sure I am planning effective literacy instruction.

This book is meaty. If you love scads of research, in depth scholarly writing and detailed processes of how to teach reading to the struggling student then this book is for you! If you are a parent just starting to research dyslexia, I would not recommend this book to start because it is so large and assumes readers already come with a fair amount of background knowledge. I would start with Overcoming Dyslexia by Shaywitz (a contributor to this text) and The Dyslexic Advantage- These are also available through audible audio books on Amazon. But this book is a must for classroom language arts teachers seeking to broaden their knowledge of language based learning disabilities and how to fix them in the classroom. Each chapter is written by a different expert in the field and gives this text flavor that most scholarly books lack. My copy is heavily highlighted!

This is an excellent textbook for anyone wishing to know more about evidence-based, strategic instruction for dyslexia remediation. The chapters are written by several researchers and master instructors who are top in the field. It is a college level textbook, however, so be forewarned that it is rather content-dense reading. I have trained in this field for over 20 years and still use it as a reference and a refresher course.
