Dyslexia-Research.Com - The home of humanistic dyslexic research
This website has FOUR main purposes:
(1) To educate readers about the emotional/secondary effects of dyslexia.
(2) To educate mainstream teachers about dyslexia and SEN in the classroom
(3) To drive my new research into ‘Dyslexia and Success’
(4) Introduce a new dyslexic fiction author - Alex Nile.
Dyslexia: Dating, Marriage & Parenthood
Investigating communication difficulties
This new innovative book aims to investigate adults with dyslexics and their long-term relationships are affected by their learning differences. Non-dyslexic partners were interviewed and they make several interesting claims that communication is affected.
Dyslexia & Creativity: Investigations from Differing Perspectives
This book investigates with many worldwide experts in the field, the claim that dyslexics are more creative. Academic, personal and alternative perspectives are used to understand this interesting topic.
Dyslexia & Mental Health: Investigations from Differing Perspectives
This book aims to investigate with many worldwide experts in dyslexia, the emotional impact of having a learning difference. It looks at self-harming, attempted suicide, depression and personality changes.
Dyslexia and Mental Health: Helping people identify destructive behaviours and find positive ways to cope
Dyslexia is a complex condition that affects not only learning but every part of life. Experience or fear of social stigma can lead people with dyslexia to camouflage the difficulties they face, to withdraw and to adopt negative coping strategies, particularly if they lack adequate support, identification and intervention. This can have lasting impact on their emotional health.
Dyslexia & Depression: The Hidden Sorrow
An Investigation of Cause & Effect
This book investigates how dyslexia and depression/ mental health are linked. In that the emotional side of dyslexia, and social exclusion lead many dyslexics to withdraw, self-harm, and attempt suicide as children, teenagers and adults.
The Dyslexic Virus
This dyslexia-themed thriller begins in Italy at the Museo Leonardiano in Vinci, the museum dedicated to Leonardo da Vinci, with two researchers, Mike and Bob from IBM and Intel investigating several old notebooks that they hoped would reveal inventions by the genius that was da Vinci to benefit their respective companies.What they found were volumes that began a biochemical-based adventure into the plague and other diseases of that era, which were brought to life.
Dyslexia: The Ultimate
This book tells the story of Josh a school boy in Year 6 at primary school. He is having problems in class and daydreams a lot to cope with lessons he perceives as boring (‘boring lessons and boring reading books’).
This story tells of their mum’s battle with the school, fighting the injustice they see in their son’s education. This story is told from the boys perspective of how this is affects them.
The Deceitful Dyslexic
This book tells the story of David, an unidentified dyslexic who believes he is stupid and lazy, well that’s what everyone including his teachers called him at school.
No one diagnosed him growing up and he slipped through the net for diagnosis at school. He lies to cover up for his inadequacies, and then he forgets what and who he has said these lies to, which gets him into trouble and has wrecked many personal relationships.
SEN DIFFERENTIATION: Leading to positive interventions
This SEN Differentiation guide was written to supplement a SEN CPD (Continual Professional Development) programme at a mainstream inner London Secondary School, now rated ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED.
It was written for teachers overwhelmed by negative behaviours they were facing in lessons and were at a loss to implement positive strategies to assist their student’s learning journeys.
As a researcher, SENCO, Special educational needs teacher (SEN) and a dyslexic myself. I aim to produce research and publications that question current perception of living with a learning difficulty. Such a difficulty that affects not only children, but adults as well.
I invite to you to look at the different areas of this website, and I welcome comments and suggestions about how it can be improved.
