Dyslexic Indicators: Adults do not realize they are dyslexic until they have children and their children have difficulty learning to read. Then these adults say, “Hey, I had the same problem.”
There are several Dyslexic Indicators that indicate a child may have difficulty in school learning to read. They are:
- delay in learning to talk
- trouble learning to rhyme
- no interest in learning sounds and letters
- difficulty with listening and following directions
- mispronunciation of words
- family history of reading, writing an/or spelling problems.
Fisher Hill has a literacy program geared toward Spanish speaking teens and adults who have had difficulty learning to read.
The very first book in the program is English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. This book introduces students to reading in English. It uses a very systematic, explicit approach to teaching the forty-four speech sounds used in the English language. There are six worbooks in this series. After completing English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1, students are ready to practice their beginning reading skills by using English Reading Comprehension for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. They can also begin practicing writing by using English Writing Composition for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. English Vocabulary for the Spanish Speaker Book 1 reviews the vocabulary presented in English Reading and Spelling for the Spanish Speaker Book 1. After completing the Book Ones in the series, students can begin the Book Twos. The four series, each with six workbooks, were written to be used together. By using the four series together, students get a good foundation in English literacy.
Adults like our workbooks because the pace is reasonable, print is large, directions are in Spanish, there’s lots of pictures but the content is for adults. Teachers like our books because everything is ready to go! There’s an answer key at the the end of each lesson and an English translation of the Spanish directions at the end of each book.
