"A book for children at all levels. If they're really struggling, look for the nuggets in here to help them progress. If they don't want to work, here are ways to turn work into fun. If they're enthusiastic learners, read about how you can help them flourish. And if they can never remember their PE kit - there are plenty of ideas for that too."
- Margaret Rooke, Author, Dyslexia is my Superpower

"This book clearly outlines specific strategies that can be used in the classroom and at home to successfully support children who experience the challenges of dyslexia. As a parent and educator, I found the book to be extremely helpful in answering my questions while also providing fun and exciting ways to help my child feel more successful when reading and writing."

"Written by experienced practitioners, this book offers 70 parent friendly and highly engaging activities to support primary and secondary age students with dyslexia in an era of increased emphasis on home tutoring and remote learning. Structured but also accessible, there are clear explanations of why the activity is important and how to carry it out. It helpfully covers not just literacy skills but also provides activities that promote neglected but important domains such as motivation, resilience and executive skills."
