Helping Your Dyslexic Child
by Eileen M Cronin
This book looks at all the ways in which dyslexia affects a person's life especially that of the child. We know that dyslexia affects the child's ability to read but what he's not always considered is the affected has on understanding, difference between left and right, counting and money as well as more.
With all these issues the child with dyslexia can then have other major implications which can have devastating effects on their lives - this is the problem of self-esteem which to make them feel powerless and incapable and makes parents also feel so powerless to help their child.
The author, uses her experience of working with dyslexic children over many years into producing develop a programme parents can use to help their child improve reading, writing and spelling. Using a simple test that can be done at home this programme is comprehensive and holistic and can be used by of all parents at home.
Looking at a number of areas affected including information on how real dyslexia is, to help for homework, the growing a maturing of a child's mind to specific skills which are needed when parenting a dyslexic child to help their self-esteem and general learning skills and how to build better links with school to gain maximum help for the child.
A great book and a must for all parents who want to learn how to more effectively help the dyslexic child.
