Providing tips for what really helps and works based on real-life experience, this fun, accessible book shows teens and tweens with dyslexia that they are far from alone in their experiences.
'...informative, based on the latest research and compassionate - three qualities that make this a must read for parents and children struggling with dyslexia.'

Praise for An Introduction to Dyslexia for Parents and Professionals by the same author:
'Hultquist writes in such measured, clear and uncluttered prose that no one can take the journey from diagnosis to remediation without feeling that one is in the hands of someone who really understands the issues surrounding a dyslexia diagnosis, not only for the one diagnosed but also for the whole family and the professionals working with them.'
- Dyslexia Contact, Vol. 26, Feb 2007
What is Dyslexia? is designed to help adults explain dyslexia to children.
The author provides information about all the most common types of dyslexia: trouble with sounds, trouble remembering how letters and words look, trouble finding words, and mixed dyslexia. He deals with the basic facts and adopts a style which is accessible to children without talking down to them. The book includes clear examples which children will be able to understand, as well as activities for parents to do with their children. The author emphasises that everyone has strengths and weaknesses and that having dyslexia is okay.
This book will be valuable for parents of children with dyslexia, as well as other adults working with children with dyslexia.
