Full of fun, practical games and activities accompanied by charming cartoons for children aged 7 to 13 with dyslexia, this book makes learning easy and entertaining. Written by a dyslexic tutor for dyslexic students, the tips are embedded in first-hand experience and will inspire and motivate any reader to aim high.
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.
‘I like how the book tells you how to do the games. I don’t like to learn spellings normally, sitting down and writing them over and over again. I like to have more fun when I’m learning.’
– Dyslexic child – Cameron age 11
‘Personally I think this book is brilliant! Mainly because the activities in this book are fun and can help you remember certain things. It covers how you can learn in a new creative way and it can help your confidence, dramatically.’
– Harriet age 13
‘I found this book easy to read. I think that using plasticine and big letters to learn spellings can help more than writing on a piece of paper. I think this because learning this way is visual and you can use your hands to make the word.’
– Aaron age 14
‘A book that makes you wish Alais Winton was your own personal teacher. She draws ideas from the energy and creativity of the children she works with, and provides us with simple, clever, inspiring ways to improve spelling, handwriting, maths and English.’
– Margaret Rooke, author Dyslexia is my Superpower (Most of the Time)
‘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.’
– Neal and Victoria, parents to George
