    Ease a parent's mind

    This book assured me that my recently diagnosed dyslexic 14 year old daughter would be just fine. The author's light-hearted approach in describing what it is like to be dyslexic as both a child and an adult was informative and entertaining. This book should be read by all teachers and parents of dyslexic children so that they can fully understand and appreciate the challenges and accomplishments of dyslexics.

    Looking Inside the mind of a dyslexic

    While researching dyslexia, I came across this book, and found it to be just what I was looking for. This is the kind of book that helps us understand the mind of a dyslexic. It's more realistic than books that discuss the matter but get nowhere, because they don't understand. Because the author himself is dyslexic, he clearly understands and has experienced solutions that can help a child or adult in how to deal with it. I co-wrote with my husband, who also has dyslexia, his autobiography, 'In the Shadows of Childhood Secrets,' which also helps the reader understand the mind of a child in his secret world.
