The first completely comprehensive, practical guide for recognizing, diagnosing, and overcoming any childhood reading difficulty.
According to the National Institute of Health, ten million of our nation s children (approximately 17 percent) have trouble learning to read. While headlines warn about the nation s reading crisis, Susan Hall (whose son was diagnosed with dyslexia) and Louisa Moats have become crusaders for action. The result of their years of research and personal experience, "e;Parenting a Struggling Reader"e; provides a revolutionary road map for any parent facing this challenging problem.
Acknowledging that parents often lose valuable years by waiting for their school systems to test for a child s reading disability, Hall and Moats offer a detailed, realistic program for getting parents actively involved in their children s reading lives. With a four-step plan for identifying and resolving deficiencies, as well as advice for those whose kids received weak instruction during the crucial early years, this is a landmark publication that promises unprecedented hope for the next generation of Information Age citizens."e;
