Wichita author highlights brighter side of dyslexia in informative, eye-opening book
WICHITA, Kan. — Author Joan Stambaugh announces the nationwide release of her new book, “What’s RIGHT With Me?: Hope for the Dyslexic.”
In “What’s RIGHT With Me?,” Stambaugh reveals the answers about dyslexia that come with over 80 years of studies and research. Stories about people with dyslexia will make you laugh, cry and wonder why there continues to be such a shroud of mystery surrounding it.
Their stories will give you a glimpse into the amazing way their brains process, affording them amazing strengths. Their stories will inspire and motivate us for positive change as well as guide those of us in the trenches — students, parents and teachers. As we look at what is right rather than what is wrong, it becomes evident that ability describes better than disability.
Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com.
Stambaugh, an advocate for those with dyslexia, speaks out on behalf of those who need specialized remediation and support in our schools. A former special education teacher and reading interventionist in the public school system, she currently works as a literacy intervention specialist. The author, who has completed the comprehensive therapist training in a Multisensory Structured Language Education program (MSLE), is also a Certified Academic Language Therapist (ALTA). She and her husband reside in Wichita, Kansas, where they enjoy spending time with their three grown children and grandchildren.
