Can't Read, Can't Write, Can't Takl Too Good Either; How to Recognize and Overcome Dyslexia in Your Child.
Clarke, Louise
This book, first of all, is a personal document, a revelation of the struggles of a bright, determined child and his family in understanding and coping with his severe language disability. Secondly, it is a guide for parents, directing them to the danger signals which may indicate future language problems in their children and taking them through the maze of treatment methods. Starting with the bewildering inability of an apparently normal, healthy child to imitate words when he was two years old, the author traces her son's development through stages of poor motor coordination, restless rhythmic movements, and auditory perceptual confusion in his preschool years; difficulty with reading, spelling, writing, and even verbal communication in his elementary years; and the emotional difficulty these problems created in his high school and college years. Sources of information and materials are included in the appendixes and are listed by national and state organizations. (WR)
