I bought this as it was described on amazon.com as the ultimate guide to dyslexia. It is a personal account of how the author has managed her dyslexia (academic success is one of her many achievements) using tools such as mind mapping and coloured overlays to help reading. It's ok, but not the ultimate guide to dyslexia.
This is a small paperback book [15cm x 21cm] of about 95 pages. With my son (now 10) all this book really rung true, and I'm amazed how little our local primary school seem to know my son compared to the description given here on how a dyslexic son behaves (particularly the tantrums and whinging when you try and get him to read - it's because he finds it really hard work). Dyslexia simply means 'difficulty with words' so as a label it is little more than stating the obvious that your child isn't progressing with reading as easily as most. When my son seemed to doing badly with reading 3 years ago at primary school, I mentioned it to his teacher and she said - oh he's clearly not dyslexic he's doing fine at reading. Two years on and he had a reading age of 7 when approaching 10, and the school then said he had real problem with reading and spelling - noticed largely because his new form teacher also had a dyslexic son. If I had read this book 3 years ago I would have fought far harder to get him specialist help - it's now coming too little too late really with secondary school only 9 months away. I don't know if it's just maturity or the fact that people now recognize he has a problem (as does he) and help rather than complain and call him lazy, but he is now really trying hard at reading & spellings (well most of the time).

This book has lots of very useful information for those with a dyslexic child around 7 to 10 (the earlier you read this book the better). Some ideas my son had already worked out for himself beforehand like laying out his clothes and book bag ready for school the night before (organisation skills). He also still gets words wrong (like calling a calculator a count-a-later). Although I learnt to read very quickly as a child my spelling is awful and I still don't know the days in the months of the year - this book has a great way of working it out using your knuckles. My son still has absolutely no concept of time - "is it school today ?", "Two hours - how longs that ?" etc... However to speak to him he sounds at least as `bright' as his sister (12) who took to reading very quickly and now excels at school. This book has many good ideas on how to help your child and gives you the feeling that you aren't alone with these problems (problems that we never got at all with our first child). The book also mentions numbers and maths. The author has a dyslexic son and is an active children's teacher and lecturer in the field. I've got many `dyslexia books' but this one was great as it was so easy and quick to read over a few days - highly recommended. Note: I paid about $12 for this book new.
Setting out the fundamental difficulties of a dyslexic, Ostler, who speaks from experience, provides clues about how to overcome the difficulties experienced by your dyslexic child in a classroom/school/learning situation. You begin to realise that there is light at the end of the tunnel. However, although these difficulties are typical for a dyslexic and there are tips to work out school related problems, we need to remember it does still mean that a dyslexic child has to work much harder than a non-dyslexic child but this seems to be to their benefit in the long run. Also the parental support is of paramount importance and with parental support most dyslexics are eager to succeed and can do so.
