New Book

Sascha’s guide book for parents, ‘At Home with Dyslexia: A Parent’s Guide to Supporting your Child’, was published in August 2018

Illustrations by Danielle Sheehy

This dyslexia-friendly book is an up-to-date, practical guide for parents and guardians wanting to support their dyslexic child at home.

It will help parents to:

  • Really understand dyslexia and to spot the signs at any age
  • Talk to their child about dyslexia and foster self-belief
  • Find practical ways to improve their child’s working memory and literacy

At Home with Dyslexia is written and designed with the dyslexic reader in mind, with plenty of illustrations and visual appeal. It encourages parents to be advocates for their dyslexic child, helping them to give practical and emotional support for the entirety of their child’s school years.

Central to this guide is the language of acceptance and celebration, emphasising a learning ‘difference’ rather than a ‘disability’. Interwoven throughout the book are stories from dyslexic individuals in their own words, who give authentic insights into the challenges, solutions and achievements as a result of their dyslexia.

probably the very best place to go if you need accessible.... is Sascha's fascinating and insightful book.
