While other books tell you what dyslexia is, this book tells you what to do. Dyslexics' innate skills, which may include verbal, social, spatial, kinesthetic, visual, mathematical, or musical abilities, are their unique key to acquiring knowledge. Figuring out where their individual strengths lie, and then harnessing these skills, offers an entrée into learning and excelling. And by keeping the focus on learning, not on standard reading the same way everyone else does, a child with dyslexia can and will develop the self-confidence to flourish in the classroom and beyond.

I can't express enough how much this helped after my 8 year old's recent diagnoses. He was diagnosed with ADHD in the Spring, but I knew in my gut there was still more. Sure enough, he has dyslexia. I'm still waiting on the details of his strengths (from more testing), but he has many. A crazy thing I must add is that my husband has ADHD and I'm dyslexic. We were never diagnosed in school so we suffered silently. What's the crazy part? Well, as you know dyslexia and ADHD often run in families, BUT our son is adopted! He was placed in the right family! We're here to help and encourage him to be proud and embrace his new style of learning...and we're able to relate and understand, PLUS it's helpful for us too! Thank you for all of the amazing resources and sharing your story!
