• Welcome Parents!

        

    The following books and websites are resources I recommend to anyone interested in learning more about dyslexia, or related reading disabilities.  As with any recommendation, please use your discretion in choosing items for you and your family.  In searching for materials on your own, please be aware of items that are very expensive, or claim to "cure" dyslexia. I chose the following materials based on what will increase your knowledge, and help you advocate for your child. Happy reading!

    Books

    Each child is different, and therefore you may want to look for books that are more tailored to your family. Many dyslexics also struggle with attention and focus, while others may have additional learning disabilities. Searching an online bookseller or the internet may provide you with a specific title that meets your needs. The following are books that I have read, and can personally recommend.
