3.0 out of 5 stars I gathered from the book that bad spellers are just born that way Aug. 29 2014

I expected more strategies and a step by step method. I prefer the Logic of English. I gathered from the book that bad spellers are just born that way, but I still think there is another way.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book for parents of a non-spelling child Dec 6 2010
By Donna M. Dunlap - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
By middle school if you have a child making numerous spelling mistakes, the reality is that all the spelling lists in the world won't help. Begin checking with family members and you will find a genetic component. This book helps you better understand this disability and gives great suggestions like the use of the Franklin Spell Checker and of course using the spell check on the computer.
It would be better helping your child become proficient on the key board rather than drilling spell lists.
