Overcoming Dyslexia With Technology
Hello, we are Jim and Linda Nuttall. We wish to welcome you to our book. This book is about Jim, his dyslexia and the iPad. Linda has provided very helpful writing assistance. When speaking using “I,” we are referring to Jim.
I am dyslexic. While growing up, I knew that I had a reading problem. During elementary school and high school, I was basically a non-reader. Every day, I watched my family and fellow students read books, magazines and newspapers. I longed to do the same. When I went away to college, I visited the University of Chicago Reading Clinic. At this clinic I learned that I had dyslexia. I persevered with college and earned a PhD in Psychology from Michigan State University.
Over the years, I learned some tricks for coping with dyslexia, many of which are enhanced by recently developed technologies. I would like to pass these tricks on to you. If you or your child has dyslexia, I hope you find this book helpful. You do not need to read it from front to back. You can skip around, reading what you like.
