The charming story of 'the Secret Garden' is a tale of transformation - as much as the ability to read can fundamentally transform a person's life. Gaining fluency and enjoyment of reading can be like establishing a beautiful garden in your backyard.
When working with dyslexic students or anyone who struggles with literacy, accurate focus and the mastery of words are our tools to master reading. Abstract words that visual learners find hard to picture get planted like seeds. It is then up to the apprentice gardener to continue planting, weeding and pruning once all the knowledge has been passed on.
The daily exercises and reading this book are watering the new garden to full maturity and bloom. No wonder 'the Secret Garden' by Frances Hodgson Burnett seems like a perfect choice to create the road map to our own stunning garden of knowledge.

About the Author

Barbara Hoi lives in Sydney with her husband and their four children. Passionate about her work as a Davis Dyslexia Correction Facilitator, she has taken the liberty to change 'the Secret Garden' slightly, translating the Yorkshire dialect into English, and adding a brief description for words that prove difficult for visual learners.

Barbara is the founder of 'Sydney Dyslexia' and 'Autism Sydney'. In order to help her dyslexic clients and struggling readers in general, she has created this workbook. She hopes it can become a companion and guide for children and adults alike to nurture their own secret garden and start to enjoy and comprehend anything they choose to read.
