Alison Awes provides a comprehensive review of the literature from the most current recommendations of the National Reading Panel to create a detailed description of dyslexia as she emphasizes the positive qualities of the children with this language disorder. Awes provides an expansive explanation of the Montessori method and the ways in which the Montessori materials can support the dyslexic child. When early diagnosis and intervention is partnered with an attentive guide and appropriate accommodations, the dyslexic learner can become a successful reader and learner through life.
