Dyslexia: A Complete Guide for Parents and Those Who Help Them

By Gavin Reid | Go to book overview

“Gavin Reid is a trusted friend and advisor to parents and teachers of children
who learn ‘outside the box’. In this extraordinarily comprehensive guidebook,
he explains current research on why some children have difficulties and
offers practical suggestions on how to help. This valuable resource should be
essential reading for anyone concerned with children’s learning.”

Jane M. Healy, Educational Psychologist and author of ‘Different
Learners: Identifying, Preventing, and Treating Your Child’s
Learning Problems’

“There is no-one better placed than Gavin Reid to provide such a compre-
hensive, up-to-date and clear guide to dyslexia. He tackles the confusion
and controversies that surround this area, and empowers parents to com-
municate as partners with teachers to achieve the best for each child. His
approach is calm, considered and respectful, valuing the range of abilities
and also acknowledging the emotional needs of young people with dyslexia.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has a child who is, or
who might be, dyslexic, and to all who are involved in teaching children and
young people.”

Jennie Guise, Chartered Psychologist, DysGuise Ltd, UK

“Informative, engaging and empowering… Gavin’s new book is a must read
for all educators and any parent who has a child who learns differently.
Gavin’s clear style, unique care, passion and expertise help provide the keys to
unlocking the potential of our young people with dyslexia. With his insights
and practical recommendations this book will be extremely beneficial in
homes, schools and colleges worldwide.”

Mandy Appleyard, Principal Teacher & Educational Consultant, Fun
Track Learning Centre, Perth, Western Australia

“Gavin Reid’s humane and informed approach is ever more evident in his
second edition. His insights into the difficulties encountered by parents are
highly accurate and very helpful as is his advice on how to counter them.”

Craig Dobson, Head of Science, Thames High School, New Zealand

“Gavin Reid has produced a wonderfully written book offering a fresh per-
spective on dyslexia. A very useful guide, offering clear and concise infor-
mation, together with invaluable insights, designed to inform and empower
parents seeking help for their children. Most certainly a work that I would
consider an important addition to all professional libraries.”

Marcia Mann, Founding Fellow and Vice President, Academy of Orton –
Gillingham Practitioners and Educators, New York
