Praise for What is Dyslexia?: '...informative, based on the latest research and compassionate - three qualities that make this a must read for parents and children struggling with dyslexia.' - Paul M. Quinlan, Ph.D. from The Curtis Blake Center Praise for An Introduction to Dyslexia for Parents and Professionals by the same author: 'Hultquist writes in such measured, clear and uncluttered prose that no one can take the journey from diagnosis to remediation without feeling that one is in the hands of someone who really understands the issues surrounding a dyslexia diagnosis, not only for the one diagnosed but also for the whole family and the professionals working with them.' - Dyslexia Contact, Vol. 26, Feb 2007 What is Dyslexia? is designed to help adults explain dyslexia to children. The author provides information about all the most common types of dyslexia: trouble with sounds, trouble remembering how letters and words look, trouble finding words, and mixed dyslexia. He deals with the basic facts and adopts a style which is accessible to children without talking down to them. The book includes clear examples which children will be able to understand, as well as activities for parents to do with their children. The author emphasises that everyone has strengths and weaknesses and that having dyslexia is okay. This book will be valuable for parents of children with dyslexia, as well as other adults working with children with dyslexia.

It’s Just Dyslexia is a book that can be used as a tool for counselors, teachers, parents and students. It addresses the disorder called “dyslexia” and some of the effects on children as they learn and develop. Its impact is significant, not only in the acquisition of academic skills for success in school, but on the emotional and psychological state of the child. Hopefully, more understanding and an effective pedagogy customized to meet the needs of these children can continue to develop. The purpose of this book is to provide: -information regarding some characteristics of dyslexia, -assistance with the management of the disorder, -support and compassionate understanding of the effects of the disorder and -encouragement to meet the challenges of the condition. With a supportive salute and encouraging note, I dedicate this book to all the children who struggle with the written word: “Never give up on yourself, IT’S JUST DYSLEXIA.”

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: A-, Hawai'i Pacific University, language: English, abstract: Learning is a life-long process and everybody knows that it is often very painful and difficult. Teachers are supposed to meet the individual needs of the students, to help him/her to gain insight into the academic world and to succeed in school. It is often difficult for teachers to fulfill these tasks but it can become even more difficult if there are other factors that play a significant role in the learning process such as a learning disability called dyslexia. Nowadays there are a lot of children, who get the diagnosis dyslexia, and they are still treated the same way as children without a learning disability. It is often difficult for parents to accept the fact that their child might be dyslexic because they know how problematic the life of the whole family can become. These children have almost no chance to have a positive experience related to reading in school as a lot of teachers are still unfamiliar with teaching techniques that are appropriate for dyslexic children. Jackie Stewart, a Scottish race driver, who won 27 Grand Prix titles and has dyslexia, said once: “You will never understand what it feels like to be dyslexic. No matter how long you have worked in this area, no matter if your own children are dyslexic, you will never understand what it feels like to be humiliated your entire childhood and taught every day to believe that you will never succeed at anything.” (Wolf, 2008, p. 166) Society has to accept that idea that there are dyslexic children, whose needs are different from the ones of normal children. Teachers should use teaching techniques for dyslexic children in school such as multisensory instruction, phonemic awareness, and promote the idea of home schooling, as they would not influence normal students in a negative way. Consequently, dyslexic children as well as normal children would have a good chance to be successful.
