Hindi Handwriting is a holistic educational language book with a focus on learning how to write Hindi and takes a creative approach to learning. It also looks through the kaleidoscopic lens of dyslexia. 

Most people have no real grasp of the breadth and depth of dyslexia, what it is or how to support children and adults. Educators who don't know that they don't know, exacerbate the problem when they have no real awareness. The disadvantages, aside from academia, affect so many areas of the dyslexic's daily life. The British Dyslexia Association estimates 10% of the UK population as having dyslexia, though there are likely to be far more who are unaware and cannot fathom their experience of inconsistencies seemingly arising out of left field. 

Hindi language learners, whether dyslexic or not, who experience difficulty in knowing which directions the letters go, will find a solution in the workbook section. Each letter is accompanied by arrows and numbers to indicate the direction and sequence in addition to guidance for unfamiliar sounds and how to pronounce them. 

Hindi Handwriting is uniquely different from other Hindi language books as it expands upon the pragmatic elements of language by exploring the spiritual roots. It does this by highlighting how meditation helps to optimise study and concentration, clarifies symbolic meanings in the sacred AUM shape and sound and makes links between the goddess of learning, Sarasvati, and neuroscience. Lastly, it explores the social and material dimensions of the culture and religion.

Deborah Shaer is a child and adolescent therapist-counsellor, with a background as a school therapeutic counsellor specialising in the arts. Currently, she is working in private practice in London. Her work is integrative and transpersonal, incorporating a wide range of therapeutic approaches including psycho-education. Deborah's past experiences include teaching English to speakers of other languages (ESOL). Prior to that, she devoted stretches of her time in India, covering a span of ten years whilst deepening her meditation and mindfulness practice alongside community work. Her advocacy for holistic education, and social and cultural awareness arises out of her own history and the marginalisation suffered by many of the children and adolescents she has worked with. This is her first book.
