Please note that DD-OH does not officially endorse, represent or have any legal connection to any of the resources listed. These are websites, videos, and books that many parents have found very useful in their personal quest for information on dyslexia.
The purpose for creating this website is to point parents in the right direction and to cut down on the research that is required to learn about dyslexia in order to successfully advocate for a dyslexic child. This is by no means a thorough list of resources and I will continue to add to it as I come across good sources of information. I am also getting Orton-Gillingham training and since there are many books on the required reading list, I thought I would post “mini book reports” here as a means of proving I actually read the book.
I am getting training through an affiliate of The Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practictioners and Educators (AOGPE) and I am a subscriber member, as well as a parent member of the International Dyslexia Association (IDA). Since I am a member of these organizations, I am familiar with their services and may pass on their information to spread awareness. There are many other organizations that may also be credible sources of information, but I am not familiar with them. Two that come to mind are ALTA and IMSLEC, which like AOGPE, also trains and certifies Orton-Gillingham trained professionals and certified academic language therapists. Click here to get a brief overview of ALTA, The Alliance, IDA, and IMSLEC. The primary reason for deciding to through AOGPE is the proximity to the training that is available to me.
