This enhanced DVD assists teachers in identifying children with dyslexia and provides techniques for enriching these students' learning experiences. The DVD explains dyslexia, displays the characteristics of dyslexia, and demonstrates many accommodations that may be implemented in the regular classroom environment. The DVD includes a comprehensive companion Resource Kit with dyslexia characteristic checklists, over 90 suggested classroom accommodations, suggested multisensory language programs, technology and product resources, and much more. 

I am using the DVD for Education majors in the classes, “Language Acquisition and Development” and “K-6 Teaching Methods and Strategies.” The DVD is extremely informative and comprehensive in scope. It is very user-friendly and easy to follow. Both classes have benefited from the information and research presented in the DVD.
