There are several children's books available that parents can read to or with their dyslexic child. Some I recommend are: Thank You Mr. Faulkner by Patricia Polacco, The Don't Give Up Kid and Learning Differences by Jeanne Gehret, I Have Dyslexia What Does That Mean? by Shelley Ball-Dannenberg and The Alphabet War: a story about dyslexia by Diane Burton Robb.
As an educational specialist at Child and Family Development, I assess and diagnose learning disabilities and specifically dyslexia in school-aged children. I also offer treatment and consulation services to children and their families.
