Jan Hasbrouck, who knows dyslexia as a parent, researcher, teacher, and teacher-educator, has written a very needed introductory resource for parents and teachers. Jan dispels the myths about this common condition, replacing them with contemporary, accurate, and highly understandable information. This is an excellent resource for all parents ready to advocate for the support their children need, and all teachers seeking the research-proven reading instruction these students need to thrive. –Louisa Moats, Ed. D.Author, researcher, and former Vice President of the International Dyslexia Association
From now on, when asked by parents/teachers/physicians what they need to know about dyslexia, I ll recommend this informed and accessible little book. It offers an abundance of wise advice, knowing insight, and up-to-date research. A practical and sensitive treatment of a heartbreaking subject. –Timothy Shanahan, Ph.D.,Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois at Chicago
