DYSLEXIA by Elaine Landau


Email this review


A ""First Book"" survey of a common learning disability, including a general description of its possible effects, both functional and emotional; anecdotal glimpses of kids struggling along undiagnosed, misunderstood by teachers and peers; and the outlook for success with specialized help. Upbeat color photos (including college students, thus extending readership) do a lot to set the positive tone of a book that should reassure dyslexics while it informs their families and classmates. Good list of ten organizations; glossary (seven words, including ""menial""--why bother?); ""For further reading"" (it's true that little is available, but this four-book list exaggerates the lack); index.
