Davis Facilitator Barbara Hoi of Sydney, Australia has recently published two books sure to delight parents and teachers. The first book is called The Right Brain for the Right Time: Unlock the Dyslexic Potential & Transform from a Frustrated Reader to an Inspiring Leader.
The book relates stories from Barbara’s own practice, explores the many talents associated with dyslexia, and is full of grounded, practical advice and tips and suggestions. The book is also laid out with extra space between paragraphs, which helps make it readable and easily accessible by all.
Barbara’s second book is called Nurturing the Secret Garden: A Guide to Reading Mastery, and is designed as a tool that can be used by parents or tutors to help guide and motivate children after a Davis Dyslexia Correction program. In order to fully benefit from a Davis program, students need to make clay models of the letters and meanings of more than 200 trigger words – small, function words of language that do not have easily pictured meanings.
