new book title announced!

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.

  1. Congratulations Erika!!! We are so proud of you!! Can’t wait for this to be released so I can share it with the local school. Now we can have another “collection” of your wonderful art!! 143

  2. Dyslexia is a complex individualistic problem for many. It is fairly common that people describe their dyslexia problems as defining dyslexia for all. It must be remembered that an individual’s description of dyslexia is just that an individual’s description.

    Actually any particular description of dyslexia will indeed resonate with some other dyslexics because every description of dyslexia will likely be true for some dyslexics.

    I think it is a good idea to read many individual account of dyslexics as each is likely to help the reader identify some of their individual problems and that is helpful to focus on the individual problems needing work.
