Publisher Description

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.'
