Raising a child with dyslexia: what every parent needs to know

Author Don Winn

Author Don Winn

Author Don Winn has had to deal with dyslexia for his whole life, without completely understanding its full impact on every aspect of his life until he was in his forties. But after viewing a documentary called The Big Picture:  Rethinking Dyslexia, he was inspired to learn all he could about dyslexia and recent cutting-edge research in the field. He came to a deeper understanding of himself and became a dyslexia advocate.

Through his books featuring dyslexic role models and through his advocacy, Don hopes to help children with dyslexia so they don’t have to grow up without fully understanding how to live their best life with dyslexia. He also hopes to help parents and educators comprehend dyslexia so they can provide the vital social and emotional support that dyslexic learners need to thrive and be happy.
