by Ans van Tienhoven
When Ans van Tienhoven found her son was dyslexic, she developed her own system to help him to read and to spell. She continued working in this field and developed and refined her system. Now, nearly forty years and about two hundred students later, she has distilled the essence of her system and presents it here.
Here system is clear, concise, and above all practical. This is a very “hands-on”: approach to the problems of helping a dyslexic child. Her examples are well thought out, and designed for immediate practical use. This book belongs in every home with a dyslexia problem.
