I have received several new book proposals over the last couple of years. I am always so honored when an author contacts me because they want my paintings to accompany their words. I read the manuscript I Have Dyslexia. What Does That Mean? early this year. It was instantly compelling to me. Shelley Ball-Dannenburg of Cincinnati, Ohio and her 8 year-old daughter Delaney co-authored the book. In it, Delaney narrates about her difficulties and discovering new abilities.
Delaney’s Dyslexia diagnosis catapulted their family into a new world of lessons and tutors…a new way of reading and learning. Shelley has become an expert on the disorder and now works to test children for Dyslexia. Her blog is a fantastic resource for parents and professionals. She strongly advocates the multi-sensory tutoring method that has worked for Delaney and many other children, Orton-Gillingham.
The first two pages I Have Dyslexia. What Does That Mean? are below. The book will be released early next spring.
