What is it like living with dyslexia on a day-to-day basis? This book, based on interviews with children with dyslexia and their families, presents first-hand accounts of just what dyslexia means for the children themselves and for the people around them. It looks at how children were first identified as dyslexic, the social and emotional difficulties they encountered, their educational experiences, and the impact these events had on their families. It also considers in detail how teachers and parents can best support children with specific learning difficulties. This includes looking at the cognitive, educational, social and emotional perspectives in order to gain a more complete understanding of dyslexia.
