Dyslexic learner and teacher Alais Winton shows the positives of being dyslexic, and makes learning (and even spelling!) fun, with games and activities to make school learning simple.


 


An inventive and practical book for children aged 7 to 13 who have been identified as having dyslexic tendencies, this book contains practical and creative activities for kids and teens to use, such as Spelling Sculptures and Hear it, Sing it, Beat it! The games and activities use the four different learning styles that work best with dyslexics - thinking in pictures, in movement, in music or socially.


 


With funny cartoons, which appeal to visual thinkers, and a section with advice on how parents and guardians can aid learning, this is an essential toolkit for any dyslexic child.


 


Market: Children aged 7-13 with dyslexia and their parents/guardians; teachers.

We all have different styles of learning and learn at different rates. Being dyslexic emphasizes this. Alais has tutored our son George for the last 18 months and used these methods successfully to capture his great imagination. He is now learning with confidence and improving as a result. Alais understands what being dyslexic means and is able to adapt teaching techniques to get proven results.
Alais Winton is a private tutor working with dyslexic children. She has taught on several further education programmes, as well as teaching adult learners on PGC E courses. As a dyslexic teacher and learner herself, Alais has collated and researched techniques to assist dyslexic learners in education.
