There is nothing this book leaves out. I don't know what I'd do with out it. It tells you what scams to watch out for and what things really work. Best of all it spells it out for you in simple terms. If you have a child with dyslexia you need this book.

This book helped me stand strong and get the help my daughter deserved. After she was tested it became my number one resource book. It has eveything you could hope to find all in one place. If your child has been found to have an LD(dyslexia)you need this book!!!
