'This book does exactly what it says on the tin! Hultquist deals with the causes, types and sub types of dyslexia. He explains how dyslexia is diagnosed and remediated and gives appendices on agencies, resources and practical classroom strategies. I would highly recommend this book to parents who have just received a dyslexia diagnosis in the family, to professionals working with those with dyslexia and to specialist teachers to have as a handy reference/refresher tool. For all these audiences, Hultquist writes in such measured, clear and uncluttered prose that no one can take the journey from diagnosis to remediation without feeling that one is in the hands of someone who really understands the issues surrounding a dyslexia diagnosis, not only for the one diagnosed but also for the whole family and the professionals working with them.' - Dyslexia Contact 'This short, to - the- point book is an absolute "must buy" for any parent with a child with dyslexia, or any teacher with a child with dyslexia in her class. I asked a parent of a child with dyslexia to read this book and give me an honest opinion. Her reply is as good a recommendation as any review I can write: "I could see my son straight away. I now understand why he has particular reading and writing difficulties. I hope his teacher reads this book and is able to take note of this author's advice.".' - Special Children Magazine 'This is only a short book, but it is a model of consciousness and clarity. It covers much ground and should fulfill its purpose as an introduction for both parents and teachers who wish to increase their understanding of dyslexia.' -The School Librarian Journal This practical guide provides basic need-to-know information for parents and professionals and answers frequently asked questions about dyslexia. Using illustrative case studies, Alan M. Hultquist addresses many of the issues surrounding dyslexia, including possible causes and subtypes, means of testing, remediation and the controversial matter of "staying back" to repeat a school year. He identifies possible methods of classroom accommodation for dyslexic students in a range of subject areas. The list of useful resources at the back of the book can be used by parents and professionals to help explain dyslexia to children, and to help them find further information and teaching tools. This complete introductory guide to dyslexia is a must-read for parents of children with dyslexia, especially parents with children who are newly diagnosed, and for all those who work with dyslexic children and their families.

Especially in school, where these otherwise bright children struggle unnecessarily, and parents don't understand why, or how to help.Parents are surprised, even shocked, to discover that most public schools do not teach dyslexic children in the way they learn, and they must take action and overcome many challenges to get the quality education their children deserve and is required by law.In this guide, parents will find the help they need to navigate the tricky territory of the public school system with proven strategies, easy-to-follow directions and maps.

Many children spend their entire school lives struggling with their school work. Research has shown that at least 10-15 per cent of children with apparently normal learning ability will have a significant problem with school learning. They may feel that whatever they do it is not good enough - either for their parents, their teachers or indeed themselves. This can often result in feelings of demoralisation, and even alienation from learning and school. This book aims to address these issues and to help parents understand and deal with them. Dyslexia: A Parents' Guide starts by correcting common misconceptions of learning difficulties that are rife in the press and popular literature, and addresses the conflicting approaches and advice from 'experts'. This authoritative guide then moves through diagnosis – with information on dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, discalculia and more – to offering practical and easy tips to enable parents to help their child overcome their learning difficulty. Both authors are practising psychologists with extensive knowledge and experience of children's learning difficulties. They will show parents how to develop a successful approach to assessing and subsequently managing their child's difficulties.

'This is by far the best resource I have found as the parent of two dyslexic children. Out of all the documentaries, websites, seminars, podcasts and of course other books I have studied trying to educate myself on how best to support my little ladies, this provides the most relevant and necessary information in the clearest format. It has been great sharing snippets of the book with the girls, especially the view points of other people with dyslexia. Thank you for a great book!' - Amazon review This book will empower parents by giving them the tools and strategies to deal with dyslexia, making them confident and knowledgeable in the process. It offers: - a guidebook that is visually appealing, including bullet points, illustrations and short chapters, making it an easy to follow reference book for the busy (and often dyslexic) parent; - practical and emotional support at home from primary to secondary school years, as well as how to deal with school and the education system; - chapters that can be dipped into for useful day to day advice and tools to help at home , and for overall encouragement and reassurance; - parents and children sharing their personal experiences and advice in their personal accounts - the challenges of dyslexia, possible solutions and successes are openly discussed and woven throughout the chapters, giving the guide an authentic voice. Central to this guide is language of acceptance and celebration, emphasising a learning 'difference' rather than a 'disability', and a genuine encouragement of dyslexic abilities and strengths.

If your child has a language-based learning difficulty—such as dyscalculia, dyslexia, and auditory processing disorder—they may have to work twice as hard to keep up with their peers in school.

Most importantly, you’ll learn how your own special bond with your child can help spark their interest in reading, writing, and math.

This book reinforces the need for understanding and support for children with dyslexia from parents and teachers, but also the importance of the children's own understanding of their strengths and weaknesses in order to fulfil their potential. It should be recommended reading for all those involved in dyslexia. - Professor Angela Fawcett, Director of the Centre for Child Research, Swansea University What is it like living with dyslexia on a day-to-day basis? Based on interviews with dyslexic children and their families, this insightful book presents first-hand accounts of how dyslexia affects the children themselves and the people around them. Living with Dyslexia, Second Edition places the original fascinating findings within the context of current research and practice in the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA. The author: examines issues of confidence and self-esteem; explores the coping strategies adopted by children and adults with dyslexia; investigates the concept of dyslexia-friendly schools; studies how children were first identified as having dyslexia, and the social and emotional difficulties they encountered; offers guidance on how teachers and parents can best support children with specific learning difficulties; considers the cognitive, educational, social and emotional perspectives in order for teachers and parents to gain a better understanding of dyslexia. This new edition provides an updated account of cognitive research and examines important changes in relation to Special Educational Needs policy and practice in the last ten years, including the Revised SEN Code of Practice (2001), Removing Barriers to Achievement (2004) and the National Literacy Strategy (2006). Living with Dyslexia recognises that the voices of children with dyslexia are increasingly important in developing good educational practice and makes an important contribution to the literature on dyslexia.
