“Dyslexia is Not a Disease: It’s a Learning Difference”

A Compassionate Guide to Dyslexia and Related Learning Differences


In this enlightening book, Mamie B. Crockett, PhD, co-founder and executive director of the Learning Tree Academic and Community Development Center, Inc. collaborates with husband Walter L. Crockett, PhD, a visiting professor and associate director in the Executive PhD Program at Jackson State University. Drawing on Mamie’s extensive experience in teaching and training educators, and Walter’s expertise in educational research, this dynamic duo explores dyslexia with a new perspective. They introduce theoretical and practical approaches for unlocking minds and shaping futures.

The book narrates the critical issue of dyslexia, a neurological brain difference affecting up to one in five individuals in the general population. The authors passionately argue that dyslexic learners, often misunderstood and underserved, should not be allowed to “fall through the educational cracks.” The authors, driven by a sense of urgency for the future of struggling readers, offer a comprehensive guide for educators. By detailing the characteristics of dyslexia, discussing related behavior disabilities, and providing practical strategies tailored to different learning behaviors, the book equips educators with a robust plan for teaching effectively the style of dyslexic learners.

In this purposeful book, the authors aim to empower educators, school administrators, teachers, parents and stakeholders with actionable solutions based on the latest brain research. By presenting dyslexia as a learning style connected to key brain functions, the authors guide readers through brain-compatible learning environments.

Offering a glossary of terms and valuable resources, including websites and cutting-edge technology, the book becomes an indispensable tool for educators and parents seeking to support struggling readers with dyslexic characteristics. Extending beyond the regular classroom, this document provides approaches in a variety of learning settings using strategies pioneered by Dr. Samuel Orton and Anna Gillingham.

Incorporating pioneering strategies, the authors designed a checklist to help identify multisensory learning differences. Mamie and Walter build a compelling case for supporting students and teachers with this user-friendly screening tool.

This book is not just about the topic of dyslexia, but about learning differences. Using their combined eighty years of professional insight gained while working with diverse learners ranging from kindergarten to doctoral levels, readers will discover the power of unlocking the potential in struggling readers in an efficient and economical manner. Mamie and Walter L. Crockett embrace dyslexia as a unique learning style, not a barrier.
