  • Superb & science-based book on dyslexia

    By FL IDA
    Did you know that physicians, neuroscientists, and others know how to teach your dyslexic child to read well? As Yale med school professor Dr. Sally Shaywitz explains in this book, multisensory structured language instruction is what's needed and, sadly, few public school teachers provide it or have learned how to provide it. Yale, Johns Hopkins, University of Colorado, University of Texas, Wake Forest, and many other universities have contributed to the excellent NIH research on the subject. Dr. Shaywitz bridges the divide between the language of science and the language of parents. Don't let your child with dyslexia struggle, fail, and feel stupid. This book explains the responsible science on effective reading instruction. Be your child's advocate and your child WILL learn to read well. Don't let anyone, including a teacher, convince you to "wait and see." The ideal time to intervene is age 4 or 5. Get going!
