Dr. Marianne Cintron’s book, A MESSAGE OF HOPE, on dyslexia and learning disabilities, provides a variety of case studies and solutions beneficial for students, parents, and educators who have experienced dyslexia and other learning disabilities. I highly recommend this fascinating book with solutions. ~ Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich Los Angeles County Supervisor, (1980-2016)

Marianne Cintron’s new book, A Message of Hope, is just that – an exciting and encouraging message of hope for all those bright, creative dyslexic students who are being told that they will just have to live with their reading challenges. Marianne details and supports a simple, effective technique for teaching dyslexic students to read. This is a must-read for anyone working with this wonderful population of students. ~ Jill Stowell, M.S., Author and Founder, Stowell Learning Centers Reading is the cornerstone of learning. However, the human brain is not always wired correctly for reading. Marianne highlights so many important areas related to language, reading and phonological processing that impact a child’s abilities in literacy. She presents the information in a very insightful and thought provoking manner. I have been a speech/language pathologist for over 25 years and have worked solely in literacy for the past 15 years. Marianne’s enlightenment of treatment options that may benefit children other than the typical OrtonGillingham based programs is encouraging. Marianne really “hit the nail on the head” while citing the most respected neuroscientists, developmental pediatricians and other professionals in the field. Children with dyslexia can be taught to read which will lead to academic success. Marianne’s ability to convey this information is highly beneficial for all parents and educators who work with this population of students.
