Description du produit

From Library Journal

Levinson's use of patient testimonials and case studies to describe his breakthroughs in the treatment of dyslexia makes for a medical text that reads like a novel. He traces both his research on the connection between dyslexia and the inner ear and cerebellum and also the scientific community's skepticism regarding his claims. Formerly a professor at New York University Medical School and currently director of the Medical Dyslexic Treatment Center, Levinson acknowledges criticism and errors and, overall, offers a balanced view of his methods. In the process, he reveals the unfortunate increase in the politics of scientific research. Levinson's book is recommended as a source for the most current research, an account of the patients' plight, and an expose of the scientific debate. Davis, on the other hand, emphasizes child development, psychology, and education rather than medical treatment. As a dyslexic individual and a teacher, he offers a unique perspective on the subject of learning disabilities. Through his own real-life experiences he shares what everyone needs to know about dyslexia, what the dyslexic student encounters in a typical school, and what is needed to teach such students effectively. To support his conclusion that dyslexics have special talents of perception, imagination, and intuition, Davis cites talented and brilliant figures from Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci to Churchill and Walt Disney. He concludes with a test, written in simple language and printed in a large typeface to make it easier to read. Given Levinson's medical focus, his text is recommended for academic and larger public libraries, while Davis's book is appropriate for all types of libraries.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This book changed my life 28 octobre 2010
Par Jeremy Cole - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I bought the previous version of this book more than 8 years ago. I was 21, and although I would've been ashamed to have admitted it then, I hadn't read a single book cover to cover in my 21 years, including school assignments. I had really struggled in school through my entire childhood and teenage years, and nobody really understood why. I failed every English class in high school. I just wasn't able to read, and it was immensely frustrating. I tested very well, and was clearly intelligent. I got deeply involved in computer programming from a very early age, so my intelligence level was high enough. I could write in English just fine. Yet I still struggled. Nobody ever diagnosed me with dyslexia, but this book looked interesting, so I bought it on a whim.

By the time I bought this book, I was doing well working in the computer industry, but I never really understood why I couldn't read. Well, to be clear, I could *read* and understand words; I wasn't illiterate by any means, but I found it impossible to get through more than a few pages of text. I had severe reading comprehension problems. My mind would read ahead, wander around, and mis-read things, and I would have to read and re-read the same text many times to really understand it (if I cared enough to learn it, as I did for computer programming).

I read this book (slowly and painfully at first, as always), and had a bit of an epiphany. I have applied Mr. Davis's techniques using the "mind's eye", and in the past 8 years I have read literally hundreds of books cover to cover. I now love reading, and pick up a new book at least once a week.

I still find myself struggling with my dyslexia if I am too tired, but that's the only time his techniques are not completely automatic. After years of practice, it's entirely automatic. I also (when possible) carefully choose printed books based on their typesetting (and choose the font on my computer carefully), which helps immensely as well -- I never knew that fonts and spacing could make such a difference before reading this book.

Mr. Davis's explanations of the differences in the workings of the mind -- the way that dyslexics can comprehend three dimensional objects in a different way than non-dyslexics -- made so much sense to me. I've always had a very high aptitude for science, mechanics, and complex systems. I've had the ability to visualize all sides of three dimensional objects, with no effort, and I've always thought this was perfectly normal. Of course I wouldn't trade that ability, that aptitude, for normal reading. Just thinking of dyslexia as a different way of visualizing rather than a disorder is a huge leap in dealing with it.

I know there are a number of negative reviews of this book, claiming that it's pseudoscience, there's no research, or that the techniques seem "silly". Personally, I don't care. The ability to read, to really read and comprehend (and quickly, at that!), has made such an enormous difference in my life that I recommend this book to everyone who will listen. If I had read this book when I was 10 years old rather than 21, I can't imagine how much it would've changed my early years.

Please, if you have a child who is struggling through school but you know to be super smart, read this book and *try it*.

Very gratefully indebted to Mr. Davis,

Jeremy Cole

5.0 étoiles sur 5 If you think your child is Dyslexic GET THIS BOOK or even if they struggle with sight words...GET THIS BOOK 1 octobre 2016
Par Mustangjim1 - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
What an amazing book. If you think your child has Dyslexia or even if you know he or she does GET THIS BOOK. It is well written and gives you insight into what is going on with your child. So many things will become clear after reading this book. You will say yes yes yes with each symptom like holding a pencil wrong, sight words, letters or numbers reversed and the big one for me was her feeling nausea when reading. My daughter would always say she felt car sick after reading for a long period of time.

It gives you hope that you can give your child the tools to cope with this "Gift". It truly is a GIFT and I have witnessed it many times. Dyslexic's are picture thinkers and it is estimated they think 400-2000 times faster then us audio thinkers. My daughter loves Minecraft and always wants to join worlds and play together. While I slowly created a simple box house, my daughter created a huge pyramid building, with multiple levels (including a barn level for her animals), kitchen, secret doors, hidden rooms, and a fountain that turns on and off. I can't even picture a building like that let alone build it.

We are only at the beginning of the journey. Just contacted a local Davis facilitator who has 2 dyslexic children that this program helped immensely. Will try to add more (good or bad) as we go through the program.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Ignore the bad reviews. This book is wonderful. 28 mars 2016

I never write reviews but felt I must for this book. My daughter is dyslexic. This book was recommend by someone I highly respect therefore I ignored the negative reviews. I'm glad I did. This book has completely changed my daughter's ability to learn. Davis is definitely not a scam artist and he doesn't need any degrees to validate the success of his program. Since he is dyslexic, he understands how their minds work; something a nondyslexic person can not fatham. Plus, this program has helped thousands since he developed it decades ago. Dyslexic children do not learn with phonics. A hammer is a useful tool, but if you beat someone over the head with it, it becomes a murder weapon. My child knows her phonics rules but she still couldn't read without a laborious process that was causing her to hate reading. The step by step instructions in this book set her free. I was skeptical after I read through the process but, she responded EXACTLY as the author said she would. The process may seem bizarre to a nondyslexic but just do it. I was amazed. Thank you Ron Davis!

I am a neuropsychologist and supervised dyslexia assessment for more than a decade. This idea was new to me. I tried it on a bright child, whom I called my "guinea pig" and he caught on. I had his mother in the sessions so she could learn from me. She reported that he jumped two grades in reading in two weeks. I told her to keep it up over the summer. So, I'm impressed.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Explanation of Dyslexia 2 juin 2014
Par Moonlightgraham - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Very clear and concise on what can be an emotional and confusing subject. Not only does the auther (who is dyslexic) explain the symptoms fo dyslexia but many of the reasons behind those symptoms and the compensating behaviors that dyslexics will adopt in order to "survive" in school. The book then finishes with a series of drills to allieviate some of the more troublesome aspects of dyslexia.

Reading and writing are always going to be difficlt for our daughter, but with this book I have gained some insight into how she thinks and how she grapples with the chore that is reading and writing. Just understanding some of the compensating mechanisms that she has adopted to cope with her reading/writing issues has helped us to help her tremendously.

Finally, the auther stresses to not suppress or "harm" the tremendous benefits that a dyslexic mind can bring to a host of problem-solving and creative endeavors. The list of dyslexic super-achievers is long and illustrious and it is stems in part from their unique way they view the world and problems. The author stresses that becoming functional in reading and writing is certrainly attainable while retaining the gifts of creativitiy and outside-the-box problem-solving that many dyslexics excell out.

Well worth the money and a quick and easy read.
