What Dyslexia Help Handbook Readers Have Said: "Firstly, thank you so much for this book. As parents, who are clearly desperate, it is amazing how few resources one can get their hands on. I see this book as a tool for soooo many parents, not just homeschoolers. The majority of moms I talk to do not have the option of homeschooling their child and are literally at the school's mercy. And you clearly know, as I do, what their outcomes are. Your book gives parents specific things they can do to take charge of their child's education. So kuddos to you for taking the time to put this all in one place!" ~ K.C. "I am so amazed at your God-given wisdom. I was just so impressed with your logic I had to comment!! Thank you for the privilege of reading your book." ~ V.S. I've traveled this path with my sons. One of our public school administrators said my older son would probably "never read well" and told me to lower my expectations, but they were wrong! After implementing the right dyslexic solutions, my boys soared educationally. My son graduated from college Magna Cum Laude due to the help we gave him at home. You can find reading and academic success for your child too, even if he has severe dyslexia like my son. Buy now if you want to start immediately on your path to overcoming dyslexia in your child.
