About the Author


Virginia W. Berninger, Ph.D., Professor and Research Affiliate, Educational Psychology, Center on Human Development and Disability, University of Washington, Box 353600, Seattle, Washington 98195

Dr. Berninger received her Ph.D. in psychology at Johns Hopkins University and has had a career informed both by translation science (bridging basic research and application to practice) and interdisciplinary contributions to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment, including instruction. As a professor at the University of Washington, Dr. Berninger has been the principal investigator of research grants on typical and disabled language learning funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and also the co-investigator of a research grant on math development and instruction funded by the U.S. Department of Education. This interdisciplinary research has been informed by Dr. Berninger's prior teaching experience (in urban, suburban, and rural settings in general and special education and at the elementary and secondary levels); training in clinical psychology and experience as a licensed psychologist (in assessment of developmental and learning disabilities); and ongoing consultation with schools, teachers, and parents for more than 30 years. Her current efforts focus on evidence-based, treatment-relevant differential diagnosis of specific learning disabilities and professional development for teachers and other professionals in schools and outside schools who influence school practices.



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. She has authored articles and books about dyslexia, creative activities for the classroom, and language-related guides for teachers. 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."

After untold hours spent searching for and trying methods to help my son learn to spell, and TRYING for 3 years to convince the school to understand that spelling is important, I finally gave up and hired a private tutor. (The school stopped teaching my son spelling, basically saying he would learn to use spell checks, and other technology.) After a year using a method with the tutor, based on the types of methods talked about in this book, my son is beginning to understand spelling -- that there are rules and order, not chaos. For the last two years I have been trying to tell the school that my son also has a writing disabilty, even though he is a fantastic reader.
But rather than having to give up, I recently learned about the existence of Virginia Beringer and her work, so ordered this book. All I've got to say is: Wow! It is tremendously helpful to me to learn about the ways spelling and writing need to be taught to a student with a language disability like dyslexia. I have bought 3 more of these books: one for the tutor, so she can begin using some of the ideas to help not just my son, but other kids; one for my son's next-year teacher; and one for my son's previous teacher who will surely love to gain this knowledge and find these methods.
I also ordered the companion workbook, which I plan on implementing at home, so I can save on tutoring costs and work with my own son, instead of someone else doing it. Plus I know that this method is research based and has been shown to cause actual brain changes that show up in life as increased ability to read, write, and spell.
This book should be on every bookshelf of every English teacher in every school. It should be dogeared in every office of every SLP in the country; it should be in the hands of every parent of every child with a language disability, and assigned as required reading for all education majors.
THANK YOU Dr. Beringer and Beverly Wolf, for this book!

I came across this resource at a conference and it's been highly recommended by many colleagues (school psychologist). I bought it for my own resource library, and loaned it to a 2nd grade teacher who LOVES it. No matter what I think about a book, when teachers find it worth their time to read something from my shelf, I know it's a good book!

Also, for those familiar with Virginia Berringer work- its unlike some of her other books- it's easy to read (doesn't require a PhD to understand). HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I read Teaching Students with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia cover to cover, including all the footnotes. To my disappointment, I did not gain a single significant insight with direct applicability to working with my child. I am the mother of a bright sixth-grader who is mildly dyslexic (she plowed through the Percy Jackson series, but read "solstice" as "socialist") and severely dysgraphic (writing a four-paragraph letter to her new teachers took over two hours). The focus of this book was significantly more on dyslexia and handwriting, than on coaxing production from a verbally articulate, but reluctant writer. The authors' writing quality was very uneven: those sections written by the educator were clear, and made sense; those sections written by the PhD were so cluttered by acronyms and citations as to be impenetrable. Pairing perspectives from a teacher and researcher seemed a great premise; however, despite all the fine-print text, this book didn't change anything in my understanding of my child's challenges, or offer any significant suggestions we could apply to making her writing assignments easier. I did not recommend this book to her teachers, for these reasons. That said - if you're looking for a book to share with a teacher not well-experienced with dysgraphia, my daughter found two books that capture exactly her feelings in dealing with the challenge: Stacey Coolidge's Fancy-Smancy Cursive Handwriting, by Barbara Esham, Mike Gordon and Carl Gordon; and Eli, The Boy Who Hated to Write, 2nd edition by Regina G. Richards, Eli I Richards, Lynn Craven and Judy Love. She has shared both those books with multiple teachers over the years.

I have enjoyed reading this book in my spare time. Working with students with dyslexia and dysgraphia has been quite a challenge. In the beginning I could find very little about dysgraphia so this book has been very good to read. I am not finished with it yet but look forward to reading more. I am doing a lot of what it talks about already but always willing to try new techniques. Using different techniques with different students really helps fit their learning and goals. The book is great for both new teachers, seasoned teachers, and parents. I highly recommend the book.

With some disorders, a slightly different approach to teaching is necessary. "Teaching Students with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia: Lessons from Teaching and Science" is a guide for educators of these students with impaired speaking and writing skills. Dyslexia and dysgraphia are challenges, but not insurmountable ones. Literacy is the primary focus, and authors Virginia Berninger & Beverly Wolf use their experience to create a very useful manual for educators, making "Teaching Students with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia" a top pick.
