Dyslexia Outside-the-Boxis a best-selling book which provides a balanced
perspective showing how a dyslexic child's challenges are directly
connected to the flip-side strengths of their brain's unique wiring. It
helps you understand the mind of a child with dyslexia and explains
what's going on in their outside-the-box brain in a way that can help
you make them feel much better about themselves.
This book brings together evidenced-based
information about dyslexia and organizes it in an easy-to-understand
format for anyone who knows and wants to support someone with dyslexia.
It breaks down the many aspects of dyslexia and offers solutions that
have the "whole person" in mind, showing how these children whose brains
are delightfully wired differently can thrive, not just survive. The
insights into reading, spelling, and writing challenges are accompanied
by strategies for helping outside-the-box learners succeed in school.
It's filled with fun and easy suggestions, tips, and teaching ideas,
and, best of all, encouragement for parents and teachers of dyslexic
students. It's a valuable resource for parents to use when conveying
their children's struggles and strengths to educators and professionals
who work with them.

child succeed by demystifying some of the terminology that schools,
medical professionals, and legislation use in regard to dyslexia and
providing practical ways parents can help at home. You'll want to refer
back to these appendices over and over again for multisensory ideas,
high-frequency spelling patterns, resource recommendations, and much
