This book provides an up to date, practical guide for parents wanting to know how they can best support their dyslexic child at home.
'This is by far the best resource I have found as the parent of two dyslexic children. Out of all the documentaries, websites, seminars, podcasts and of course other books I have studied trying to educate myself on how best to support my little ladies, this provides the most relevant and necessary information in the clearest format. It has been great sharing snippets of the book with the girls, especially the view points of other people with dyslexia. Thank you for a great book!' - Amazon review
This book will empower parents by giving them the tools and strategies to deal with dyslexia, making them confident and knowledgeable in the process.
- a guidebook that is visually appealing, including bullet points, illustrations and short chapters, making it an easy to follow reference book for the busy (and often dyslexic) parent;
- practical and emotional support at home from primary to secondary school years, as well as how to deal with school and the education system;
- chapters that can be dipped into for useful day to day advice and tools to help at home , and for overall encouragement and reassurance;
- parents and children sharing their personal experiences and advice in their personal accounts - the challenges of dyslexia, possible solutions and successes are openly discussed and woven throughout the chapters, giving the guide an authentic voice.
Central to this guide is language of acceptance and celebration, emphasising a learning 'difference' rather than a 'disability', and a genuine encouragement of dyslexic abilities and strengths.
Probably the very best place to go if you need accessible, user-friendly information, and a whole plethora of sound, practical guidance about how to help a child with dyslexia, is Sascha's fascinating and insightful book - Sunday Independent (Ireland)
This book has been enlightening and a complete game-changer for my understanding of dyslexia. The structure and visual presentations make it an easy and informative and enjoyable read. It should be book of the year in my opinion. Thank you, Sascha Roos. I really struggled understanding my son's educational assessment report and this book has helped me understand the report in an empowering way. I am so grateful
I was so excited to read At Home with Dyslexia. It felt a little bit like coming home! As the parent of a dyslexic 11 year old, this book is an excellent source of information, written jargon free and very informative. The comments from parents and children will resonate with you. It is a new road and a new journey. I am daunted but hungry for information, and I am thoroughly enjoying At Home with Dyslexia
