Selikowitz has written a clear and sympathetic guide to the difficulties that parents and teachers need to surmount when they are faced with a dyslexic child.

He describes clearly what is known about these problems, concentrating on the information that is of practical use to parents in understanding their children's difficulties and in helping them to overcome problems and improve their self-esteem. The book also provides a number of suggestions for managing difficult behavior.

Schools can implement academic accommodations and modifications to help students with dyslexia succeed. For example, a student with dyslexia can be given extra time to complete tasks, help with taking notes, and work assignments that are modified appropriately.
Teachers can give recorded tests or allow students with dyslexia to use alternative means of assessment. Students can benefit from listening to audiobooks and using text reading and word processing computer programs. Students may also need help with emotional issues that sometimes arise as a consequence of difficulties in school. Mental health specialists can help students cope with their struggles.
