    Get comprehensive information on identifying, understanding, and diagnosing students with dyslexia and dysgraphia along with hands-on strategies and techniques for intervention.

    The author begins by dispelling 16 myths about dyslexia and setting a goal of helping the reader understand the struggles experienced by students with dyslexia and dysgraphia. Then discusses:

    • the processing styles inherent in dyslexia and dysgraphia
    • how to identify at-risk students
    • components relevant to diagnosing dyslexia
    • when to compensate and when to remediate
    • the importance of phonological awareness skills and how to develop them at early and advanced levels
    • approaches to develop sound/symbol correspondence for reading and spelling
    • why students with dyslexia need instruction in phonics
    • how to develop written language skills using remedial and bypass strategies
    • how to improve written language expresssion through metacognitive awareness and explicit practice of specific processing skills

    Activities are included to build these skills:

    • phonological awareness beginning with easy rhyming and alliteration tasks and ending with advanced tasks such as creating malapropisms and reduplication games
    • sound/symbol correspondence following a mnemonic teaching system called Memory Foundations for Reading (MFR)
    • decoding and encoding through structured, systematic, and multisensory instruction and practice
    • spelling based on Levine's six acquired insights and including activities designed to enhance learning at each insight
    • manuscript and cursive writing
    • prewriting skills such as comprehension, rehearsal, and organization
    • written expression subskills such as as drafting, proofreading, and editing
