|Dyslexia Book goes Global|
|Friday, 12 July 2013 16:45|
Launched in May, our dyslexia book Dyslexic Brains Learn Differently is selling to a worldwide audience. In the past week alone, online orders have been received from Britain, the USA, Australia, New Zealand and Dubai as well as from all parts of Ireland.
This new book about dyslexia is written by children for children, and has been created by the students of our specialist Reading Class (for pupils with severe dyslexia).
It is a 40-page book where each child tells their own unique story from discovering that they have dyslexia to learning how to cope with it. It illustrates their many talents and abilities. The Foreword is by NEPS psychologist Richard Egan and there are information pages for parents and families, including recommended websites and apps. A unique feature of the book is that readers can scan a QR code on the cover to hear an audio-recording of the stories.
Our book is designed to give hope to children with dyslexia, their parents and teachers while showing them what dyslexia is like in real life. It clearly illustrates that these children can thrive with the correct interventions and an environment which recognises that their brains learn differently.
The book is available for purchase online on this school website and on www.wowwee.ie. Price 10 euro. It is on the shelves in Ennis Bookshop, Scéal Eile and O'Mahonys book stores (Limerick, Tralee & Ennis) and in bookstores all around Ireland. ISBN: 978-0-9576632-0-6
