Press Reviews

  • Peter W.D. Wright, Esq., co-founder of Wrightslaw and an Attorney with dyslexia

    What a great explanation about dyslexia, that it "is a neurobiological difference in the brain that makes reading and writing more difficult to learn." Readers learn what it is and is not, and, most important, what to do about it. Kelli explained that it is not a medical condition and that dyslexics are not "reluctant" readers. She explained that the use of that word "removes the onus from those who should be teaching them to read and spell-it's shifting the blame to the victim." She added that "we have a reluctant education system, not reluctant readers. Dyslexia is not a choice and those with dyslexia are not reluctant to read," but instead, in my own words, they are waiting to be taught how to read. Kelli shows and explains to the dyslexia advocate what is necessary to learn to advocate for our children to acquire reading skills. This is a great book that should be read by parents, teachers, related service providers, lay advocates, and everyone who wants to advocate for a child with dyslexia.
