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

By Gavin Reid | Go to book overview

Preface and
Acknowledgments

May I extend a warm welcome to you as a reader of this second edition of Dyslexia: A Complete Guide for Parents. You will note I have also extended the title to include … and Those who Help Them. It is important that parents should not be seen as separate or isolated. Collaboration is the key and communication is the means. Parents and teachers need to work as informed partners and that is the thinking behind extending the title. I also feel that although this book is written for parents, many professionals will also benefit from reading it.

This second edition has developed many of the themes and ideas in the first edition (published in 2004). The overall theme of this book is to provide parents/carers and families with knowledge and understanding of dyslexia. The aim is to empower parents and to provide them with the confidence through knowledge and understanding to deal with the range of professionals they may encounter at different stages of their child’s education. The book also considers post-school issues, such as college and the workplace, and provides insights into how the needs of people with dyslexia can be met beyond school. There is also a chapter on selfesteem and the emotional needs of young people with dyslexia. These factors are important in meeting learning needs.

The author lives and works in Canada and does a great deal of work in the US and Canada, but has a sound knowledge of the situation in the UK and Europe, as well as in Australia
