'This book will be a particularly helpful reference for those starting out on the road to understanding and addressing dyslexia and other related conditions.' --Sophie Irwin, Dyslexia Contact (The official magazine of The British Dyslexia Association.)
Maria Chivers, founder of the Swindon Dyslexia Centre, knows the heartache and frustration experienced by parents of children with learning difficulties. Things do not have to be that way, is her message. Learning difficulties are slowly being specified and recognised, and medical and educational help developed. To get help for their child, parents need to know how to make the system work for them. Maria Chivers draws on expert knowledge to show how to make this happen. The guide takes parents step by step through diagnosis, treatment, education, and beyond into career options. Up-to-the-minute facts and practical advice enable them to: Pinpoint exactly what is wrong with their child. Communicate with teachers and others in authority. Assess their child's rights. Choose the right education from among the options. Many learning difficulties, once identified, can be overcome. If a child has, or is suspected of having, learning difficulties, this essential guide provides the facts needed to take action.See all Product description

Maria is the founder of the Swindon Dyslexia Centre and is well-used to helping parents of children with learning difficulties. This is a sympathetically written book, demonstrating a real understanding of how parents feel when their child isn't learning quite like other children. Parents are the first to know when something is not right with their child, but persuading others to see this and treat it sensitively can be an uphill task. This book is ful of strategies to help and advice on approaching the professionals, all written in a clear, sensitive and understandable manner. Dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, SEN, gifted children and ADHD are all covered, with useful checklists for initial guidance. Full ovf practical advice, this is an excellent first port of call.
