"At last! A book about dyslexic thinking by one who is dyslexic, and for fellow dyslexic people... I would recommend this book to any dyslexic and non-dyslexic person. It is a dyslexic friendly book." 'Dyslexic Contact' Like other dyslexics, Ronald Davis had unusual gifts of creativity and imagination, but couldn't function probably at school and it wasn't until he was an adult that he discovered techniques that allowed him to read easily. Written from personal experience of dyslexia, this breakthrough book offers unique insights into the learning problems and stigmas faced by those with the condition, and provides the author's own tried and tested techniques for overcoming and correcting it. "What do Cher, Leonardo da Vinci, Whoopi Goldberg, and Walt Disney all have in common? Dyslexia. Though one may think they achieved success in spite of their disability, Ronald D. Davis... says it's because of it... Once students remove obstacles to learning, they are free to capitalize on the innate gifts dyslexia can bring." 'New Woman' The experience of being dyslexic is fully explained, from its early development to how it becomes gradually entrenched as a child comes to rely on non-verbal perception. Davis demonstrates that people with dyslexia have special talents of perception, imagination and intuition, which can be used to enable them to master the problems they have with reading and mathematics. He shows how the dyslexic mind works and how problems are compounded through failure and frustration. Setting out practical step-by-step techniques, using visualisation and multisensory learning, Ronald Davis brings help to the 15% of children and adults who struggle with reading and writing because of dyslexia. In this revised and expanded edition of his classic work Ronald Davis brings real help to people who have dyslexia. "Presented in a dyslexia friendly style... I would recommend this book, both for people with dyslexia and parents and teachers. It describes the problems so well, but even more importantly it radiates optimism and encouragement and offers a programme for success." 'Disability Now'

Like other dyslexics, Ronald Davis had unusual gifts of creativity and imagination, but couldn't function 'properly' at school; it wasn't until he was an adult that he discovered techniques that allowed him to read easily. Written from personal experience of having dyslexia, this breakthrough book offers unique insights into the learning problems and stigmas faced by those with the condition, and provides the author's own tried and tested techniques for overcoming and correcting it. The experience of being dyslexic is fully explained, from its early development to how it becomes gradually entrenched, as a child comes to rely on non-verbal perception.

In this revised and expanded edition of his classic work, Ronald Davis brings real help to people who have dyslexia. At the age of 38, when he was a successful engineer running his own business (but barely capable of reading), Ronald Davis discovered that he, and other dyslexics, thought in terms of three-dimensional pictures rather than words, which made learning to read by conventional methods difficult. He developed his own three dimensional and visualisation learning techniques to help him read, based on the belief that dyslexia is a different form of intelligence (rather than a disability) and that the dyslexic needs to be taught by a method that values their different intellect. From being described as 'functionally illiterate' when he left school, Ronald Davis is now the author of The Gift of Dyslexia, one of the bestselling education books in the world. It led him to found the Davis Dyslexia Association to help other dyslexic children and adults to read and write. The Davis method is now used in over 40 countries, in 30 languages, by over 450 accredited teachers.

This book guides students and practitioners through the wealth of information on cognition and language development by breaking the area down into manageable chunks and drawing these together into a full understanding of the holistic nature of child development. Children with communication difficulties are at risk of poor outcomes educationally, socially and in employability. Whilst there may be a range of interventions which can help children, it is the practice of those working with them that is the key to success. Therefore a firm understanding of communication development and the ability to adapt teaching to support children’s individual needs are vital. The text offers a balanced approach to the theories and research into the development and acquisition of language and literacy in the early years. It examines how practice can be improved and the impact that language and literacy development has on learning outcomes. It also, importantly, addresses the particular pedagogy related to bilingual and multilingual learners. Carefully structured activities are provided and the text clearly relates theory to practice. Pedagogical features encourage a questioning, challenging and reflective approach, promoting critical thinking throughout.
