A Must for Parents Who Suspect Their Child is Dyslexic

This book outlines valuable information that I have not found in other L.D. handbooks (such as the advantages of Omega 3 fish supplements in your child's diet), yet it's a quick read. If one is to buy only one book on L.D./dyslexia, buy this book.


There was nothing in this book that I wasn't satisfied with. Your book is wonderful! I really mean that. It was very informative,insightful,helpful,and most of all - it helped me easily identify with it. After all, I am Dyslexic. I have always been Dyslexic,and I will always will be Dyslexic. I felt like I was reading all about myself in your book. I am glad that you pointed out that Dyslexics can be able to sound out words and spell well but they often have problems with nonsense words and also comprehension. I also liked that you mentioned the possibility that Dyslexic symptoms can lead to misdiagnosis of disorders like ADD. I don't even know if I have inattentive type ADHD that I was diagnosed last year at the age of 32 years old. My Dyslexic symptoms can easily can account for the inattentive type ADHD. I have been paying more attention to how I write. I noticed that when I was beginning to write the word, diaphragm, I wrote a b instead of a d. I have read ground as brounds and an as no. It's like my Dyslexia hasn't really gone away. I took the Nelson Denny reading test when I got assessed for learning disability. I scored 49th percentile on the reading comprehension, but there were things on that test that I have read about in the past. There were things on Carl Jung and Homer. Carl Jung's psychology is something that really interests me. He believed in the metaphysical and was seen as a mystic. I knew about Homer. I read the Iliad as a kid. I loved reading about the Trojan War. I just loved mythology because it was great for my unharnessed imagination which you noted in people labeled ADD. I was like the posterboy for ADD. If there were no things on that test that I never read before, I would have scored well below the 30th percentile,and I would have qualified as having a reading disorder. I was never given a nonsense word reading test which is used to measure decoding ability and diagose Dyslexia. The psychologist told me that I didn't have Dyslexia. I had most of the symptoms of Dyslexia as a child. Maybe I did have problems with reversing letters as a child. It's hard for me to remember. 3 years of special education could have helped correct my Dyslexia. I really enjoyed reading your book. You've helped me realize that I am Dyslexic. There is no doubt in my mind that I am Dyslexic. I know that my children will be Dyslexic if their mother happens to be Dyslexic like me. I will do whatever I can to get their Dyslexia treated. They will be given the help,tools,love,and care to help them succeed in life. I feel that this was something that I never really had when I was a child. I blame nobody for that. I was held back a year because of immaturity which you noted could happen to kids with Dyslexia. I did feel more stupid because of that. My mother didn't know anybody. She didn't know that I was Dyslexic. She even called me "retard" when I was in 1st grade. Later on, she told me that I was lazy and irresponsible when I was in mainstream


The word "everything" normally brings an air of doubt to my mind, especially when it comes to dyslexia. However, this book is as all inclusive as one could hope for. As a dyslexic parent with two dyslexic boys I found this book to be one I must highly recommend! It is easy to read (big help to us dyslexics doing research for our children) and concise in a way that was refreshing for a book of this type. This book is full of latest information, some new to even me, but it also includes all the things it took me many years to learn the hard way. My sons are out of high school now so I have traveled down many of the paths described in this book. I have read many dozens (that is a lot for me) of books on dyslexia related subjects and this is by far the best parenting book for dyslexic children I have found. It is a wonderful resource for those new to the subject as well as more seasoned parents like me! It truly is an "Everything" book!

Invaluable information

This is an invaluable resource for parents of children who have dyslexia. It is laid out so clearly and is so easy to read. You don't get lost in the wealth of information that it contains. It explains everything a parent needs to know to help their child through the maze of having special learning needs. I highly recommend this book!

Dyslexia demystified.

This book is a "must read" for every parent who knows or suspects their child has dyslexia. It will act as a practical guide and provide welcome relief from the maze of often conflicting information a parent encounters when researching ways to help a child.
