Simple Words Books™ Meet the Readers Where They Are

Dyslexia is a brain-based learning “disability” that inhibits ability in word recognition, reading fluency and writing. It also has residual effects such as depression and anxiety that many children go on to experience so early in their lives. 

For young dyslexics, low-level/high-contents books are needed not only for practicing fluency and comprehension, but also building self-confidence. Sam Is Stuck in Simple Words Books series is written with this goal in mind.

We believe the right book gives a dyslexic child the opportunity to experience a love of reading and enjoy a chapter book, without tears.

Inspired by the beginner phonics elements in the Orton Gillingham, Cigdem Knebel created her first book: Sam Is Stuck. She now has ten decodable chapter books.
