Finding out that a child has dyslexia can be shocking and confusing - and thousands of parents get this disturbing news every day. Appearing as early as when a child is struggling to say “Mama” and “Dada,” dyslexia is a condition that will affect a child’s ability to read, write, and understand basic language construction - and for a parent, this can be a tough reality to take in. Covering information on every stage of diagnosis, treatment, and growth, this reference will help parents: teach children how to cope with educational, personal, and social difficulties; choose the right school and reduce academic struggles; maintain communication with their frustrated child; and more. Providing parents with the invaluable information and resources they need, this book takes an in-depth look at the reality of the disability and manages to make sense of it for worried parents.
