MEDIA REVIEWS

Practical Ideas and Activities for Parents of Dyslexic Kids and Teens is immediately useful for any parents with dyslexic kids and teens and actually would also be useful for most schools to have too. You can see it has been written by authors with extensive first-hand knowledge and experience.
Packed with an easy-to-read style with imaginative ideas to engage each young person. Many require few resources or any expensive kit. It is a sure-fire winner.

-- Professor Amanda Kirby, parent of dyslexic children and chair of The ADHD Foundation
This book clearly outlines specific strategies that can be used in the classroom and at home to successfully support children who experience the challenges of dyslexia. As a parent and educator, I found the book to be extremely helpful in answering my questions while also providing fun and exciting ways to help my child feel more successful when reading and writing. -- Alysha Philip, Vice Principal, Teacher and Parent

Written by experienced practitioners, this book offers 70 parent friendly and highly engaging activities to support primary and secondary age students with dyslexia in an era of increased emphasis on home tutoring and remote learning. Structured but also accessible, there are clear explanations of why the activity is important and how to carry it out. It helpfully covers not just literacy skills but also provides activities that promote neglected but important domains such as motivation, resilience and executive skills.

-- Dr Valerie Muter, Consultant Paediatric Neuropsychologist

A book for children at all levels. If they're really struggling, look for the nuggets in here to help them progress. If they don't want to work, here are ways to turn work into fun. If they're enthusiastic learners, read about how you can help them flourish. And if they can never remember their PE kit - there are plenty of ideas for that too.

-- Margaret Rooke, Author, Dyslexia is my Superpower (Most of the Time)
