Overcoming Dyslexia: Second Edition

We rated this book:


Reading is an important skill to learn and master. It’s so important that it can make or break you in school and the years ahead. For many people, this is no problem once they start learning the basics in kindergarten, but for others, they never seem to get the hang of associating the letters on the page to mean actual words in their head. Dr. Sally Shaywitz, a world-renowned pediatrician and expert on reading, has given us the second edition of Overcoming Dyslexia, which is full of scientific studies and the latest information. Broken up into seven parts, Overcoming Dyslexia covers how dyslexia affects people by its nature, diagnosing, teaching, choosing the correct school, and succeeding in life during college and beyond.

Overcoming Dyslexia is packed with excellent information that can be utilized in various situations. The information is presented clearly and concisely, and it covers nearly every aspect of dyslexia. The people who will get the most information out of this book will be parents who have children or relatives who struggle with dyslexia. Teachers and educators should also pay close attention to its information. Here lies an important book for workers in many different fields, but the information is useful for everyone.
