Probably the very best place to go if you need accessible, user-friendly information, and a whole plethora of sound, practical guidance about how to help a child with dyslexia, is Sascha's fascinating and insightful book
At Home with Dyslexia helps parents to support their child with dyslexia by providing many evidence-based recommendations and presenting it in an accessible and easy to follow format. It details some of the most common problem areas for all ages: reading, spelling, and writing, as well as some of the associated difficulties commonly present in dyslexia: working memory, study skills and organisation. Not forgetting the impact that dyslexia has on self-esteem and confidence. This book also discusses this, as well as some simple but effective ways to support and advocate for your child through the education system. A useful guide that can be dipped in and out of when needed and also a useful accompaniment to an educational psychology assessment report
This book has been enlightening and a complete game-changer for my understanding of dyslexia. The structure and visual presentations make it an easy and informative and enjoyable read. It should be book of the year in my opinion. Thank you, Sascha Roos. I really struggled understanding my son's educational assessment report and this book has helped me understand the report in an empowering way. I am so grateful
I was so excited to read At Home with Dyslexia. It felt a little bit like coming home! As the parent of a dyslexic 11 year old, this book is an excellent source of information, written jargon free and very informative. The comments from parents and children will resonate with you. It is a new road and a new journey. I am daunted but hungry for information, and I am thoroughly enjoying At Home with Dyslexia
[The] focus on home makes the book unique, as most dyslexia books focus on school . . . An essential read
This is by far the best resource I have found as the parent of two dyslexic children. Out of all the documentaries, websites, seminars, podcasts and of course other books I have studied trying to educate myself on how best to support my little ladies this provides the most relevant and necessary information in the clearest format. It has been great sharing snippets of the book with the girls, especially the view points of other people with dyslexia. Thank you for a great book!
