Dyslexia—What You Need to Know Now

I’ll be the keynote speaker at this year’s Central Texas Dyslexia conference where I’ll be releasing my nonfiction guidebook, Raising a Child with Dyslexia: What Every Parent Needs to Know The research, science, and conversational techniques in this book will help parents of any child be more in tune with and responsive to their child’s emotional and educational needs. In addition, there are several chapters about working with your child’s school to get testing, accommodation, and other educational needs met promptly.

Cover of the book Raising a Child with Dyslexia: What Every Parent Needs to Know by Don M. Winn. A great tool to help parents and educators provide emotional support for kids with dyslexia.

The book will be available from amazon.com and other online bookstores starting in October. If you will be attending the Central Texas Dyslexia Conference on October 19, 2019, and you would like to preorder signed copies of my new book at a discounted price, you can do that here. You will be able to pick up your preordered books in person at the conference.

I was recently interviewed by Education News about dyslexia and my new book. You can read the interview here: An Interview with Don M. Winn: Dyslexia.

What early readers are saying about the book:

Dyslexia. It is a word that, like autism and cancer, strikes fear into the hearts of parents, teachers, principals and those impacted by it. Don Winn has written a comprehensive yet nurturing, caring, and compassionate book about this condition. Don has done a superlative job reviewing the main concerns relevant to dyslexia. There are so many issues—social, behavioral, cognitive, reading, and coping, but Don tries to address all of these in a kind, caring fashion. Parents, special ed, and regular ed teachers need all the information they can get to work with and nurture a child with dyslexia. Don does a great job of covering the waterfront of issues that are relevant to dyslexia. An important and much-needed text.

I will discuss select topics from the book in future blogs in the weeks leading up to the conference.
