Summary This book will empower parents by giving them the tools and strategies to deal with dyslexia, making them confident and knowledgeable in the process. It offers: a guidebook that is visually appealing, including bullet points, mind-maps, illustrations and short chapters, making it an easy to follow reference book for the busy (and often dyslexic) parent; practical and emotional support at home from primary to secondary school years, as well as how to deal with school and the education system; chapters that can be dipped into for useful day to day advice and tools to help at home, and for overall encouragement and reassurance; parents and children sharing their personal experiences and advice in their personal accounts -- the challenges of dyslexia, possible solutions and successes are openly discussed and woven throughout the chapters, giving the guide an authentic voice. Central to this guide is language of acceptance and celebration, emphasising a learning 'difference' rather than a 'disability', and a genuine encouragement of dyslexic abilities and strengths.
