The Word Gobblers Review

Just love it! If you are a parent or teacher who has ever wondered why a child who has the tools for reading still struggles and hates it… please read this book. Wonderful way to explain the importance of visual processing and get people to ask the right questions. Brilliant illustrations to explain how ‘The Word Gobblers’ distort text and confuse numbers. Practical tasks are included to show how color can minimize contrast between the black text and white paper and help stop those pesky Gobblers. With around 50% of struggling readers having this visual processing difficulty, called Irlen Syndrome, this book is a first step to help identify them before formal testing. I have already purchased my copy to display to parents visiting my Office.
