Grasping the Nettle
A non fiction book by

"The theme of the book likens the support dyslexic learners need to the careful husbandry used by a skilled and creative gardener" "the gardening analogy proves to be an apt one, as indeed parents and teachers of dyslexic learners, like gardeners, needs to be resourceful, imaginative, patient, optimistic and full of vision. The ideas contained in this very practical book will help both those new to teaching dyslexics and those who feel they need an extra fillip to their teaching..." "Ann, Kate and Jonathan have contributed to the armoury of resources available to support dyslexic's something which is fresh, different, and, above all, appealing." Kath Morris, OCR Assistant Chief Verifier, SpLD Scheme "This book is cool.... I don't usually like reading, but I found this book really interesting. I just wish it had been around when I was at school and that my class teacher had read a copy. Then I might not have had to stay in every playtime to practise my handwriting and work on my spelling." Jonathan Pitts "By dyslexics for dyslexics of all ages, this is the first book on the subject which one can honestly say is without fault. Not a word of patronage, jargon, rubbish statistics, or repetition of things everyone has heard many times before. Above all, it shows the learning process from what it truly is - fun!" Susan Parkinson, Arts Dyslexia Trust
