Take Control of Dyslexia and Other Reading Difficulties is a unique guidebook written especially for kids with dyslexia and other reading difficulties to help them overcome their reading struggles and find success in school and beyond. This handbook addresses the fundamentals of reading for elementary and middle school students, speaking to students directly in easy-to-understand language with charts, graphs, and illustrations.

Unlike most books that focus on the "how-to's" of reading, this book teaches kids what reading is all about. They will learn about the different skills involved in the reading process, why learning how to read can be difficult, tips for studying and completing homework more easily, and what kinds of strategies and technologies might help improve their reading abilities. By interviewing kids with dyslexia and reading difficulties, the authors offer insight into the frustrations that come with reading difficulties and provide encouragement to push forward to reading success.

Grades 3–8

Review by: Jody R., Mensa Foundation - May 25, 2012
This book is a nice resource for older children or adults with Dyslexia. It has helped my child feel more comfortable with dyslexia and provides many tactics to help with reading, writing and school.
Review by: Thomas West - October 24, 2011
Jennifer Fisher and Janet Price have provided a valuable service in bringing together materials and strategies from many sources to help remediate the wide range of difficulties experienced by those with dyslexia and other reading difficulties. It is upbeat and nicely summarizes information on learning styles and the role of new technologies as well as discussing briefly the special talents used by highly successful dyslexics in a variety of fields. I would recommend this book as a starting point for parents, students, teachers and related professionals. —Thomas G. West, author of In the Mind's Eye and Thinking Like Einstein.
