How To Handle And Plan Your Kid's Life To Get A Handle On His Dyslexia Condition
Know The Secrets Of Overcoming Dyslexia With This Book!
You have chosen this book because you are thinking of your child’s well-being. He may be having a hard time keeping up in class, often makes spelling errors and hates to read even the simplest of words. You may have been seeking for some advice on what you can do to help him do better in academics, particularly in reading and writing. You have probably asked yourself, what is wrong with my child? – And though a little hesitant, you have probably considered finally getting an assessment to clear your head from all the worries and the never-ending questions. There’s just so much to take in.
What’s in the Book?
This book provides you with in-depth, relevant information regarding Dyslexia (both for kids, teenagers and adults alike). Instead of being buried with mountain of theories or lose your eagerness with confusing terminologies, we’ll give you only the most straightforward facts about Dyslexia, and nothing else.
The book aims to impart parents with practical ideas on hands-on activities that your child might enjoy doing, along with strategies that may benefit him for a lifetime – as there are actually plenty of tips we can utilize to help your kid stay organized and keep the b’s and d’s facing the correct way.
If you found yourself reading through this intro, you have either started to consider the possibility of Dyslexia or may have already done your homework. Your child’s Individual Education Program (IEP) may already be underway, too. Whatever phase you are in at the moment, this book provides you with guidance and assurance; both medical and legal that will help you raise a strong-willed individual.
