Cigdem Knebel Ask A Speechy Episode 7

Cigdem Knebel

When Cigdem struggled to find high-interest/low-level decodable chapter books a dyslexic child could painlessly read, she began to write one herself for her 7-year-old son. 

Cigdem is the founder of Simple Words Books, which are high-interest /low-level decodable children’s chapter books. Her mission is to improve fluency, comprehension, and most importantly, reading-confidence of struggling readers. She accomplishes this by using many carefully chosen decodable and frequently used words in her books with the skills of young dyslexics in mind.

Cigdem believes that all children love to read. This is no different for children who struggle to read; they just need to find that right book for them. And Simple Words Books aspire to be those books.
