Reading Blocks: A Step by Step Method to Teach Reading is a phonics based, multisensory reading program. This system is designed according to the latest research on the most effective way to teach reading. Reading Blocks breaks up the learning to read process into 32 blocks, or chunks of knowledge. Each block contains everything you need to know and use in order to successfully teach that reading block. You will systematically build a reading wall of knowledge, block by block. The Reading Blocks approach makes teaching reading and learning to read easy, even for readers with learning differences, or who were unsuccessful in other programs. Reading Blocks offers: A complete systematic, multisensory, phonics based approach to teaching reading which can be customized to fit any age learner and any learning difference. A system suitable for all learners, but especially learners with Dyslexia, Autism, Asperger Syndrome and Central Auditory Processing Disorders (CAPD). An original "Reading Wall" scope and sequence which allows the instructor and learner to see exactly where they are on the path of learning to read, as well as exactly where they need to go. Unique reading material and activities for each block. This takes the guess work out of finding appropriate material to use for praciticing the skills at each level. The titles of supplemental Decodable Readers which perfectly match the skills for each level. This makes it easy to find additional reading material at the correct level that will support and encourage the reader's current knowledge base. An easy to follow format which does not require months of training or a huge financial commitment. A system which can be used by Teachers, Parents, Tutors and Reading Specialists alike; no training or background is necessary. A system based on Orton-Gillingham methodology. The flexibility for the learner to start exactly where his/her gap of knowledege begins, which saves time and minimizes bordom for an older struggling reader."

The first completely comprehensive, practical guide for recognizing, diagnosing, and overcoming any childhood reading difficulty. According to the National Institute of Health, ten million of our nation’s children (approximately 17 percent) have trouble learning to read. While headlines warn about the nation’s reading crisis, Susan Hall (whose son was diagnosed with dyslexia) and Louisa Moats have become crusaders for action. The result of their years of research and personal experience, Parenting a Struggling Reader provides a revolutionary road map for any parent facing this challenging problem. Acknowledging that parents often lose valuable years by waiting for their school systems to test for a child’s reading disability, Hall and Moats offer a detailed, realistic program for getting parents actively involved in their children’s reading lives. With a four-step plan for identifying and resolving deficiencies, as well as advice for those whose kids received weak instruction during the crucial early years, this is a landmark publication that promises unprecedented hope for the next generation of Information Age citizens.

Taking a developmental approach, this accessible text addresses the ever increasing interest in identifying the characteristics of dyslexia in young children and reflects on the best way to reach and support these learners. Drawing upon current research, the author considers our current understanding of dyslexia and calls upon best practice to advise professionals, students and family members alike who seek to fulfil the potential of young children with, or showing the signs of, dyslexia. This book considers key topics explored in current best practice and dyslexia research, including: the importance of the role of speaking, hearing and understanding language dyslexia in relation to other languages and orthographies dyslexia and overlapping characteristics, particularly dyspraxia the role of play identifying and assessing dyslexia in the early years. Adopting a dyslexia-friendly position, Barbara Pavey acknowledges the ethics associated with a social model of disability, so that the focus is upon modifying teaching and learning, and respecting the views of children and parents throughout. This book includes assessment and practice strategies, good practice points, helpful ideas, first-hand narratives of dyslexia, pointers for further reading, resources and online tools, and will be of enormous practical use to anyone supporting a young child with potential or diagnosed dyslexia.

The Hickey Multisensory Language Course has become a classic. It is widely used throughout the UK by teachers working with dyslexic learners of all ages, and is a core text for university courses directed at specialist teachers. Moreover, it has exerted a powerful influence on approaches to teaching literacy skills, including the National Literacy Strategy Framework for teaching. Children now have an entitlement to access to the National Curriculum. Special educational needs, including dyslexia, must be identified, assessed, and addressed, mostly within an inclusive mainstream classroom. Special programmes such as the Hickey are implemented as part of an Individual Education Plan, and need to be linked to the Literacy Hour. The Third edition makes explicit links with current classroom organisation and gives examples of appropriate IEPs, and suggestions for use of ICT. To address the need for specific training in phonological awareness, the Hickey Lesson Plan has been modified, and a chapter added which includes specific games and activities to develop phonological awareness, and to develop the use of strategies in reading a range of whole texts.
