How to emotionally support your dyslexic child

Author Sascha Roos and illustrator Danielle Sheehy discuss this extremely important chapter in At Home with Dyslexia through its illustrations.

We need to transform attitudes towards dyslexia, and dyslexics can do that themselves by changing the language around dyslexia, claiming its strengths for themselves and never allowing others to lower expectations.

In this video, Roos and Sheehy discuss the key messages and illustrations in the penultimate chapter of At Home with Dyslexia, in which parents learn how to emotionally support their dyslexic child by fostering self-belief.
