Lol.. I have all the ideas because my sister is, as I said, severely dyslexic, and we were both homeschooled... and now my mother is a dyslexia tutor, and my nephew is extremely dyslexic, so I've worked with him on it a lot.

My mum uses the Orton-Gillingham method, if you're interested, I can ask her what the book is that they mainly use for their "how to" and "what to do" stuff, and if she has other book recommendations for you. I know the method has got a bit of a learning curve, but they have taken sixth graders who weren't even at a kindergarten level and had them at gr. 12 reading levels within two years, so it's gotta work, right?!
