      The Reality of Dyslexia. In a February 4th New York Times Opinion piece, Annie Murphy Paul wrote about dyslexia. The following weekend, the New York Times published responses (The Reality of Dyslexia: Millions Struggle) to that piece. We especially would like to draw your attention to the following letter to the editor.   To the Editor: “The Upside of Dyslexia,” by Annie Murphy Paul (Sunday Review, Feb. 5), rightly points out that while all people with dyslexia struggle with reading, some demonstrate unique.

    Overcoming Dyslexia. The science behind dyslexia. Dr. Sally Shaywitz, co-director of the Yale Center for the Study of Learning and Attention and a leader in the current research into how the brain works, offers the latest information about reading problems and proven, practical techniques that, along with hard work and the right help, can enable anyone to overcome them. This book is essential. These year-olds developed an app to help students with dyslexia learn better. Augmenta11y makes use of Augmented Reality (AR) to help children with dyslexia read books using the camera on their.

    Anna’s dyslexia is featured in many of the Pony Pal stories and is at the centre of the plot for two of the Pony Pal books – #2 A PONY FOR KEEPS and #38 PONIES ON PARADE. In A PONY FOR KEEPS, Anna’s parents say that she cannot keep her pony, Acorn, if her grades do not improve. However, there has not been a good text on dyslexia until now. Dr. Books does an amazing job teaching us that dyslexia is not forever. While sparing us a lot of the complicated science, Dr. Books opens us up to the reality, not a science fiction notion, that our brains never stop learning or changing.
