Product description

Review

"brings together information on research, theory, and clinical experience pertaining to the teaching of dyslexic children and adults"--

"There is no one in the field who would not find something useful in this book, whether it be an integration of disparate pieces of knowledge, a reminder of strategy, an exposure to a new area, a cleaning up of terminology, or a particular package of data to pass on to trainees, colleagues and parents."

"greatly needed resource for understanding, teaching, assessing, and parenting those who have dyslexia and related disorders....a goldmine of theory and practicality."

"Almost every chapter is packed with ideas practitioners can use immediately in their work with children, adolescents, and adults who have dyslexia."

"The Multisensory Activity Book is a valuable resource that supports mastery of critical concepts and instructional methods in reading." --Rebecca H. Felton, Ph.D.

About the Author


Suzanne Carreker, Ph.D., CALT-QI,works at the Neuhaus Education Center, a nonprofit organization in Houston, Texas, that has offered professional development in evidence-based reading methods to more than 60,000 teachers since its inception in 1980. Dr. Carreker, a past president of The Houston Branch of The International Dyslexia Association (HBIDA) and a current vice president of the national IDA board, is a frequent speaker at regional and national conferences and has authored a number of multisensory curricula and journal articles. She was the recipient of the 2009 HBIDA Nancy LaFevers Community Service Award for her contributions to students with dyslexia and other related learning differences in the Houston community.



Judith R. Birsh, Ed.D.,Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT), Qualified Instructor (QI). Dr. Birsh's enduring belief that well-prepared, informed teachers are the major influence on effective instruction in the field of reading and dyslexia had its beginning in 1960, when she met her first student who, although 18 years old, read poorly. The quest to find answers to this puzzle led her to a master's degree in remedial reading and a doctorate in reading and language at Teachers College, Columbia University. After training with Aylett R. Cox in Dallas, Texas, she became a Certified Academic Language Therapist and Qualified Instructor, founding and directing the Multisensory Teaching of Basic Language Skills courses at Teachers College in the Department of Curriculum and Teaching, Program in Learning Disabilities. Since her retirement in 2000, Dr. Birsh has maintained her commitment to teacher preparation by editing the first three editions of Multisensory Teaching of Basic Language Skills, and co-editing the fourth edition with Suzanne Carreker, Ph.D. Dr. Birsh has given professional development workshops, consulted with private and public schools, written articles, and worked with students with dyslexia. In 2008, she received the Luke Waites Academic Language Therapy Association Award of Service and the Margaret Byrd Rawson Lifetime Achievement Award from The International Dyslexia Association.
