Books by Ruth Lature
In this book, Lature mingles relevant information about dyslexia with humor as she shares her experiences with students from primary grades through adulthood. As a teacher of over thirty-five years and as an advocate for persons with dyslexia—her experience and insight is invaluable.
Lature has seen the blocked potential and even abuse that some persons with dyslexia have suffered. While the author has dealt with professionals who deny the existence of dyslexia, she has pushed forward with vigor and passion, sometimes at great personal sacrifice.
Dyslexia: A Teacher’s Journey gives you vital information and advice on what dyslexia is, and how you can find help for yourself or a loved one. The back of the book lists websites, books, and organizations that can help individuals or families dealing with dyslexia.
Ruth’s fight for the educational rights of dyslexics will make you laugh, inspire you, and most importantly inform you of the role you can play in helping all persons with dyslexia.
Her story can help present and future generations glimpse the past, best live in the present, and plan for the future.
Teachers and parents of dyslexic children will welcome this intriguing memoir of how intensive multisensory language training transformed Ms. Lature's life, both personally andprofessionally. —Marcia Henry, PhD, Professor Emerita, San Jose State University; Past president, International Dyslexia Association; Author, Unlocking Literacy: Effective Decoding and Spelling Instruction.
