    This book saved me!

    I found this book amazing! It really helped me get through school, and it helped my mum better understand me and the way i learn. It will do really well for people trying to understand dyslexics and people trying to overcome their dyslexia. It helped me with everything from understanding myself, to what i was going threw, to how to overcome it. It did everything but help me spell. But they have spellcheck for that.

    Awesome Book!

    I read this book the summer before my daughter went into the 9th grade. She had been struggling with dyslexia all through school and we had tried all kinds of interventions. Some of the interventions helped a little but nothing truly helped like this book. We did everything the author suggested and when she started school in the fall she was getting all A's except in French.

    After reading this book I felt like I could understand what she was seeing when she was reading and why she was seeing it that way.

    She loves reading now and it was this book that made that happen!
