Raising a Child with Dyslexia: What Every Parent Needs to Know by Don M. Winn

About the book: This user-friendly guide provides detailed assistance to parents and educators who want to help dyslexic children achieve their best life. Written by Don M. Winn, an award-winning dyslexic author and parent of a (now adult) dyslexic child, this compassionate and helpful handbook will help parents watch for signs of dyslexia in their growing baby, toddler, preschooler, or school-aged child. Topics include symptoms that warrant diagnosis by a professional, what to expect during the testing process, how parents can help their child at home, tips on working with the school to create an optimal learning environment, and most importantly, how to offer a dyslexic child a safe, encouraging emotional space in which to cope with the emotional fallout of the dyslexic struggle. The book is keyed to current, cutting edge research and testing methods for dyslexia and all of its attendant conditions, and also includes coping strategies to help those who did not get an early diagnosis or support.

“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.”
