Reviews

Spelling is hard if you have to learn it on your own! But when you understand the systems that are used in English to spell words, it makes a lot more sense. This book takes a morphological approach to teaching all students with dyslexia to spell and write, but the ideas apply much more widely to students who struggle or who have been undertaught. This is a great resource on the English language that teachers and parents can use to help unlock the code and help students communicate their ideas with the world. -- Douglas Fisher, Ph.D., Professor & Chair, Department of Educational Leadership, San Diego State University
This book is a must read for all teachers, not only those working with children who find spelling difficult. Sandman-Hurley demystifies the spelling of English words and provides numerous effective activities for spelling instruction. After reading Dyslexia and Spelling, teachers will no longer see spelling as a memory task but one based on the "sense and elegance of the English writing system." -- Marcia K. Henry, PhD. Author, Unlocking Literacy: Effective Decoding and Spelling Instruction; Former president, The International Dyslexia Association; Professor Emerita, San Jose State University
Kelli Sandman Hurley shines a bright light on a profound insight about spelling and dyslexia that has been in front of us all along yet few of us understand. Embrace this fabulous book and let it be a first step to learning more. -- Michael Hart, Ph.D., Founder and President of DrMichaelHart.com
