I wrote this parent guide because I know of no other resource that provides exactly this kind of practical, step by step information that parents need. Trying to work through the puzzle of reading difficulties is a frustrating and even sometimes frightening time for parents.
I know, most of all, that parents need a resource to help them act with confidence in getting the help their child needs.
Dyslexia: A Parent Handbook focuses on the needs of the parent who suspects his child has dyslexia, or whose child has just received a diagnosis of dyslexia.
You learn how to determine the educational services your child needs from the school and how to go about getting those services:
What you must do to start the ball rolling
How and when to do it
What to say in meetings with teachers and/or school administrators
What not to say in those meetings
What information to gather to take to the school and exactly how to use it once you get there
What educational services your child may need
What to do when the school balks at providing the services
What to do if the school is not following through with providing services that have been promised.
This guide is based on my experience both as a parent of a child with dyslexia and as a school administrator with many years of experience in this area.
I know how it feels to be on both sides of the table, and I use my experience to help you in:
(1) determining the school's legal obligations to screen and serve your child and
(2) how to get the school to actually meet its responsibilities.
