I was trying to help a little girl who was struggling to learn to read a couple weeks ago, when I discovered that she most likely had dyslexia, though she wasn't officially tested. I started searching to try and understand dyslexia, when I found out that I had it myself, and never knew it!
When I read The Gift of Dyslexia, I was so amazed at just how accurately the author described what I went through. I've read other people's ideas on what dyslexia is and what causes it. I usually agree with them about 50% or so. I agree with The Gift of Dyslexia nearly 100%!
This book has helped me to understand myself so much better than I did before I read it. I used to think that I was nuts about certain things. (Example: I can read and write well, but at the same time, I have difficulty reading and writing, and that didn't make any sense to me.)
Anyway, I really recommend this book to anyone searching for answers about dyslexia. It is very enlightening!
