‘At School with Dyslexia: A Study Guide for Dyslexic Learners’

Sascha’s second book is a guide for dyslexic students at secondary school. Conventional study techniques don’t always suit the dyslexic learner. This book will give dyslexic students the tools and strategies to thrive in school, by encouraging their creative strengths and innovative ways of seeing and learning.

Dyslexic students need their own study guide and At School with Dyslexia is it! Sascha’s book is the first study guide to genuinely appeal to the dyslexic reader – with readable font, short paragraphs, plenty of spacing and bullet points, as well as illustrations by Danielle Sheehy. To add to the authenticity of this guide, fellow dyslexic students share their tips and advice, their heartfelt experiences and their humour in each chapter. At School with Dyslexia is out on the 5th September 2024, also available as an e-book and audiobook.

‘At Home With Dyslexia’

Sascha’s guide book for parents, At Home with Dyslexia: A Parent’s Guide to Supporting your Child, published in August 2018 by the UK publisher Little, Brown Book Group, is a dyslexia-friendly practical guide for parents and guardians wanting to support their dyslexic child at home.

‘This is by far the best resource I have found as the parent of two dyslexic children. Out of all the documentaries, websites, seminars, podcasts and of course other books I have studied trying to educate myself on how best to support them, this provides the most relevant and necessary information in the clearest format. It has been great sharing snippets of the book with the girls, especially the view points of other people with dyslexia. Thank you for a great book!’ parent’s review

At Home with Dyslexia empowers parents by giving them the tools and strategies to deal with dyslexia. 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. The illustrations, by Danielle Sheehy, are inspired by their heartfelt words.

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