Review

As the parent or educator of a child with dyslexia, you must learn all you can about dyslexia. This is the best book out there to get you started. It is easy to read, clear and understandable, and will become your primary reference book. Do your homework and read this book! -- Pete Wright, a dyslexic ADHD attorney, former law professor, author of numerous books about special education, co-founder of theWrightslaw.com website Dr Kelli's Dyslexia Advocate is the resource I needed when I began my journey as a parent advocating for my dyslexic child. It provides parents with practical, in-depth knowledge while encouraging collaboration, patience and perseverance - all integral to a successful IEP team process. -- Lyn Pollard, Parent Advocate and Mother of a 10-year old child with Dyslexia Dr Sandman-Hurley is spot on when she says "advocating for a student with dyslexia requires you to raise awareness about dyslexia." This book is a great resource to help parents and professionals do both! -- Deborah Lynam, Parent, Decoding Dyslexia NJ Kelli Sandman-Hurley has been and is my "go to person" when I have a question on dyslexia. Her knowledge of dyslexia is truly extensive and her championing for children is well known in California and other states as well. Kelli takes every opportunity to work on behalf of children with dyslexia, from working directly with parents and children, to schools and speaking at legislative hearings. I continue to seek her advice and often refer parents from across the country to reach out to Kelli for assistance, when they are in need of expert advice on issues of dyslexia. -- Vaughn K. Lauer Ph.D., Educational Learning and Training, LLC, author of When the School Says No...How to Get the Yes!
