The Dyslexia Cure: An Interview With Ron Davis [NOOK Book]

Overview

The average person reads by “thinking in sounds” at a pace of about 2-8 words per second. The average dyslexic doesn’t think in sounds. They think by picturing images – at a rate of 32 images per second! Because they think at this much faster pace, when they come across a word they don’t have an image for (like “the” or “and”), they stumble into a state of disorientation that we see as “dyslexia” (mixing letters, seeing things backwards, etc.)....

More About This Book

Overview

The average person reads by “thinking in sounds” at a pace of about 2-8 words per second. The average dyslexic doesn’t think in sounds. They think by picturing images – at a rate of 32 images per second! Because they think at this much faster pace, when they come across a word they don’t have an image for (like “the” or “and”), they stumble into a state of disorientation that we see as “dyslexia” (mixing letters, seeing things backwards, etc.).

But fortunately there is help. Ron Davis, author of The Gift Of Dyslexia and a dyslexic himself, says dyslexics are just highly creative people who think differently than most. So we can’t expect traditional methods for reading to work for them. And in this audio, you’ll hear the revolutionary approach that does work.

You’ll Also Hear…
• The truth behind the kind of self-esteem problems dyslexics may run into, and the only way that works to prevent (or fix) that damage
• All the details about Ron’s breakthrough method, where it’s being used today, and the amazing results you can expect to see
• A simple 5-second exercise that will give you a hands-on perspective of what dyslexics feel every day
• The surprising reason the words that trigger dyslexics are basically the same as the Dolch “Sight Word” List for second graders – and what that means for parents and teachers of dyslexics
• Simple techniques dyslexics can use to “re-orient” themselves and get back on track when they feel disoriented

Well-meaning parents, teachers and friends of dyslexics may unknowingly be making their loved ones’ problems worse. But if you know the facts and the triggers, you can put an action plan in place that will actually work – for dyslexics of every age. And in this audio, you’ll hear how to do that.
