Press Reviews

  • Dr. Gavin Reid, Author and Psychologist

    At last...a book that provides parents with the complete picture! This very important book will be warmly embraced by parents. Valerie Muter uses her lengthy experience as a researcher and psychologist to provide parents with a clear understanding of the reading process and a useful bank of teaching and home strategies. The book more than lives up to its promise of providing parents with a better understanding of literacy difficulties and dyslexia. A 'must read' for parents who need a clearer understanding of the assessment and teaching process for their child.
  • Maggie Snowling CBE Professor Emerita, University of Oxford

    This is an excellent book which all parents who are concerned about their child's literacy development should read. Written in a clearly accessible style, the first half of the book explains the challenges of learning to read, drawing on solid research evidence and described simply with utmost clarity. What follows is a superb exposition of the supports parents can give to their child with dyslexia, with or without other co-occurring conditions. From what to look out for, to what to say to the teacher, how to seek assessment and what can be done at home to help, this is a feast of good advice.
