    DescriptionThis practical guide provides basic need-to-know information for parents and professionals and answers frequently asked questions about dyslexia. Using illustrative case studies, Alan M. Hultquist addresses many of the issues surrounding dyslexia, including possible causes and subtypes, means of testing, remediation and the controversial matter of "staying back" to repeat a school year. He identifies possible methods of classroom accommodation for dyslexic students in a range of subject areas. The list of useful resources at the back of the book can be used by parents and professionals to help explain dyslexia to children, and to help them find further information and teaching tools. This complete introductory guide to dyslexia is a must-read for parents of children with dyslexia, especially parents with children who are newly diagnosed, and for all those who work with dyslexic children and their families.
