I’m thrilled to announce the launch of my brand-new website and blog, Defeat Dyslexia, which provides guidance, learning resources and moral support for parents of dyslexic children.
The website was born out of a demand for practical, positive advice around issues of dyslexia and related learning differences.
I hear the same laments from parents every week: Why does he struggle so much with spelling? Why does homework always take so long? How can I help him to know he’s not alone in dealing with dyslexia?
Defeat Dyslexia aims to offer the answers to these questions and more. The website is already a hub of knowledge – and we’re adding to it every day.
There’s jargon-free guidance on how dyslexia can affect a child’s learning; advice for parents at the end of their tether; reviews of dyslexia resources; profiles of famous dyslexics; and interviews with every-day dyslexics who’ve succeeded in their chosen field.
In the coming months, we’ll also be featuring fun-packed videos, as well as providing games, activities and worksheets for parents to download for free.
