I want to share this interview that I conducted with her. It has become really clear that ‘Dyslexia Advocate’ is not only a very helpful resource for parents of dyslexic children. The book is also a fantastic resource for educators and learning specialists as well.

I’ll say it again here… EVERY person working with or supporting dyslexic children should have this book in their library!
