Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A hands-on guide for parents that will help them to identify and manage their child's learning difficulty<br> <br> Many children spend their entire school lives struggling with their work. Research has shown that at least 10-15 per cent of children with apparently normal learning ability will show a significant problem with school learning. They may feel that whatever they do it is not good enough - either for their parents, their teachers or indeed themselves.This can often result in feelings of demoralisation, and even alienation from learning and school.This book aims to address these issues and to help parents understand and deal with them.Dyslexia- A Parents' Guide starts by correcting common misconceptions rife in the press and popular literature, and addresses the conflicting approaches and advice from 'experts'. This authoritative guide then moves through diagnosis offering practical and easy tips for parents to overcome their child's learning difficulty.Both authors are practising psychologists with extensive knowledge and experience of children's learning difficulties. They will show parents how to develop a successful approach to assessing and subsequently managing their child's difficulties.
