Parents with a dyslexic child have only had professional references to turn to for much-needed advice until now. The first guide written expressly for parents, Dyslexia: A Complete Guide for Parents provides the unique insights of a noted educational psychologist on what sort of supportive role parents can play in the life of their dyslexic child. The book includes a description of dyslexia, how it's identified and assessed, examples of different approaches parents can adopt, and a range of useful resources.
