The Gift of Dyslexia - UK Edition
The Gift of Dyslexia presents a new, proven technique for correcting the perceptual barrier to reading. The author, himself dyslexic, left school branded as a dunce, but at the age of 38 he made a discovery about perception which enabled him to read a book cover to cover in a few hours, and led him to develop a system that has now helped more than a thousand people to read, write and study like everyone else.
In this book, he describes from personal experience what dyslexia is, how it develops and why it tends to affect people with heightened creative and intuitive abilities. By using these talents in a systematised way, any dyslexic person, whether child or adult, can learn to read fluently.
Dyslexia: The Major Barrier to Literacy
In the UK alone, about 350,000 schoolchildren have a disorder that inhibits their ability to learn to read. They cannot accurately perceive alphabetic symbols on the printed page and, unable to learn in the same way as their fellow pupils, lag behind in their studies. If they are not helped, they ultimately fail, pushed aside in the rush for educational achievement.
Yet these dyslexic children may be of above average intelligence. They are likely to be unusually creative and to excel as artists, performers and inventors. The following highly talented people all had to battle with dyslexia:
Leonardo da Vinci
