The true character of dyslexia is clear. It is fascinating and amazing. If you don’t see it, it is not because it’s not there, but because the true character of dyslexia remains hidden, due to your perspective.
The red black and yellow images on the cover of the book are actually 3-dimensional cubes. If you don’t see the cubes, it is not because they are not there, but because they remain hidden, due to your perspective.
Although the signs of dyslexia were all around me as an elementary educator, I did not see or understand dyslexia. Realizing that teachers are not researchers and their lives are beyond busy, this book is purposely designed to not be text-heavy or full of statistics. Ideally, this book will plant a seed that instructional changes are needed. In the meantime, the purpose of this book is to change the way teachers view their struggling readers. It will open their eyes to these students’ strengths, creativity, and potential.
Dyslexia is not a vision issue. Neither is recognizing dyslexia. At the completion of this book, though, I hope you can say, “Now I see it.”
