Springer School and Center continues our work helping parents understand dyslexia with our Book Club in 2022, Overcoming Dyslexia 2nd edition by Sally Shaywitz MD, the co founder and co director of the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity.
In order to be a good advocate for our children, we need to be confident in communicating our children’s educational needs to educators. Join us on Wednesday January 19 2022 from 6:30pm until 8 pm, online or in person, to discuss Part 1: The Nature of Reading and Dyslexia.
This book, like the First edition from 2003, is parent friendly. Dr. Shaywitz provides a guidebook for both the child and adult with dyslexia. The newest edition contains the latest scientific information on dyslexia from childhood through adulthood. She discusses screening for dyslexia, school programs, considerations for college and how digital technology can support students and adults in school and the workplace. As numerous reviewers have noted, Overcoming Dyslexia belongs in the collection of parents and individuals with dyslexia as a reference across the lifespan.
When you register for the Book Club, we will provide you with questions to consider as you read the First Section.
The 2nd Book Club meeting will be on March 10 2022 - Part II: Translating Science Into Practice: Diagnosing Dyslexia.
