Overview

In this smart and compassionate firsthand account of dyslexia, written by Catherine Hirschman with her mother, Christine Melton, we see a struggle to cope with and overcome learning differences from very early childhood. Taking pains to be honest in and explicit about the experience of dyslexia, Catherine’s story introduces the reader to the most helpful and current information, while providing feedback from her parents, former caregiver and siblings about how her struggle with dyslexia affected her relationship with her family – and advice for families facing the same challenges.

Despite the difficulties she faced and continues to face in reading and writing, the author has achieved an impressive range of successes that attest to her desire to learn and thrive academically and professionally. And ultimately, as a teacher, Catherine has helped others do so as well. She now lives in New York City and works as an educator and consultant.

Foreword by Sir Harold Evans.
