And finally, a huge THANK YOU to all those people who contributed to this online publication, especially to Debbie Hepplewhite who gave me the support and encouragement I needed to start and then to continue with this project. A special ‘thank you’ must also go to Professor Diane McGuinness and Dr. Bonnie Macmillan. These two academics opened my eyes to the real reasons why so many English-speaking children are being diagnosed as dyslexic, convinced me that ‘dyslexia’ can be easily and cheaply prevented and that virtually ALL children can be taught how to read.
