HASH(0x9450b5b8) out of 5 stars Required reading for your dyslexic child 7 Jan. 2002
By Franceen J. Gross - Published on
Format: Paperback
I just finished The Human Side of Dyslexia and had tears in my eyes. There were so many great tips for the child and family struggling with dyslexia. Every parent, teacher and sibling should be required to read this informative book. Many suggestions can be used in the classroom and home. The siblings would benefit from this book to know how to deal with their brother or sister.

HASH(0x947f6f00) out of 5 stars The Human Side is the Right Side 6 Mar. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
As a high school teacher, I have found Kurnoff's book to provide both guidance and comfort. The interviews speak to the many particular issues faced by families looking for answers and direction. The very positive tone of the book leaves the reader with a sense of empowerment. I have suggested this book to colleagues and parents and they all share my enthusiasm and appreciation.

Having been raised side by side with two dyslexic siblings, I wish this book was available years ago. Great stories to relate to, and wonderful tips.

HASH(0x9450b0cc) out of 5 stars Great Text about Real People! 10 Feb. 2008
By N. Carrillo - Published on
Format: Paperback
This text is really a story book about peoples lives with learning disabilities (LD) in reading (dyslexia). The stories are powerful and many will bring you to tears. I work with the population and am in my second Master's in LD and read this book as part of a class. I wish I would have had the time to read it more slowly. If you. or someone you know, has a reading disability, or LD, pick up this book. The interviews are with real people and if only one story touches or helps you it will be worth the read!

HASH(0x94505f00) out of 5 stars The Human Side of Dyslexia 9 Nov. 2006
By Louise Janus - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for any person who works with students! The book takes you through a "journey" with real people who have dyslexia and gives the reader great insight into the many struggles persons with dyslexia and their families have experienced. In addition, there is practical information that suggests ways of coping with dyslexia (at every grade level), and resources for assistance are also provided. The book is written in "everyday" language that is easy to understand--a great read!
