    Review quote
    "The book itself is easy to navigate: chapters are effectively summarised and well sign-posted, the index is comprehensive, and there is a useful glossary ... Gavin Reid's book offers the reader a glimpse of a gold standard, which, sadly, many parents will still not find, even in this post-Rose Review environment." (Dyslexia Review, 2011)
