Raising a Child with Dyslexia: What Every Parent Needs to Know, author Don Winn Book Review

Something that you may not know about me is I grew up with Dyslexia.  I would often switch around letters and numbers, and actually, I still do.  But I have learned different ways to deal with my brain doing these tricks on me.  Enough to earn a Doctorate in Education! 

This book talks about what dyslexia is and is not. It also gives great tips on how to get started right away from birth. 

If anything, being a parent with dyslexia makes it hard to read this book with so many words without proper spacing and headings.  So that is my only complaint. But I am underlining and staring things in the book so I can go back and learn more about myself and my child as they learn. 

I have learned a large amount from this book and I can use the techniques on myself, my children and others around me to help them. 

From the publicity manager: 

Dyslexia and ADHD challenges can make children feel inadequate, misunderstood, and frustrated both in and out of the classroom. However, teaching children to cope effectively with these challenges will create inner strength and benefits that will empower dyslexic children for their entire lives.
In the new book, Raising a Child with Dyslexia: What Every Parent Needs to Know, award-winning children’s author Don Winn explores how learning difficulties affect kids in a number of ways and illustrates how those who care for them can better understand their challenges and cultivate learning and emotional growth. Winn writes from his personal experience as a lifelong dyslexic reader and writer.
Raising a Child with Dyslexia is a user-friendly guide which provides detailed assistance to parents and educators who want to help children with dyslexia achieve their best life. This compassionate and helpful handbook will help parents watch for signs of dyslexia in their growing child at every age. More than that, Winn provides advice about when to go to a professional, how the testing process works, and how to support your child both at home and in the classroom.
Raising a Child with Dyslexia explores:
  • How parents can help their child at home
  • How grandparents can take part in helping their grandchildren at home
  • Tips on working with your child’s school to create an optimal learning environment
  • Symptoms that warrant the diagnosis of a professional
  • How to offer a safe space for children with dyslexia to learn and grow
  • Specific techniques in helping a child deal with the difficult emotional fallout of dyslexia, and much more!
In addition to his first parenting book, Winn has written picture books exploring the dyslexic experience, as well as many other educational topics for children. His last book, There’s a Monkey in my Backpack!, explores the experiences of a young girl with dyslexia—how she comes to terms with and accepts her dyslexia, as well as her feelings about herself. The book includes questions for discussion that parents can use to help their child sort out how they feel about dyslexia and themselves.
