Parenting a Dyslexic Child


Gillian Ashley is the Chief Development Officer at the British Dyslexia Association and is a qualified teacher and dyslexia specialist, with many years of working across education sectors.

The book is designed primarily to inform parents with an overview of dyslexia, its impact on individual children and the assessment process and key transition points and it covers a number of key areas that include:

• The Dyslexic Brain

• Dyslexic Top Tips from the Perspective of Someone with Dyslexia

• Supporting Children’s Literacy Development

• The Value of Study Skills for Dyslexic Learners and How to Acquire Them

• Supporting Your Child’s Emotional Development

Gavid Reid, an international expert in this field, provides the foreword, and the contributors include the British Dyslexia Association and other professionals working in this field.

The book is a very practical resource, with chapters including ‘Key Takeaways’, references and further reading and resources.

Although it is aimed at parents, this would be a very useful publication to have available in schools as it is accessible, informative and presented in a dyslexia friendly format.
