From the Back Cover
This updated and expanded edition of the highly successful Dyslexia: A Complete Guide for Parents and Those Who Help Them develops many of the themes and ideas found in the first edition, and contains up–to–date discussions of current research and programs.
The book empowers parents by offering them the information and support that will allow them to play a vital role in helping their child to thrive and achieve their full potential. New to this edition are discussions on:
- Post–school issues, such as college and the workplace, providing invaluable insights into how the needs of people with dyslexia can be met
- Practical information on dealing with the emotional needs of young people with dyslexia, as well as their learning needs
- Sections on how parents can help at home, comments on some of the more popular interventions for dyslexia, and critical evaluations of ′alternative treatments′
The new edition also includes first?hand accounts of parents′ hopes, successes and setbacks, and extensive lists of organizations and resources. It provides parents, carers, families and professionals with knowledge, strategies and insights into how children with dyslexia can be supported, irrespective of school system or the country they live in.
"The book itself is easy to navigate: chapters are effectively summarised and well sign–posted, the index is comprehensive, and there is a useful glossary ... Gavin Reid′s book offers the reader a glimpse of a gold standard, which, sadly, many parents will still not find, even in this post–Rose Review environment." (Dyslexia Review, 2011)
