Your child may need help reading and writing, but more than that, he needs you to understand him. Now you can, as you go inside the emotional life of children with learning differences.

In The Secret Life of the Dyslexic Child , you'll finally discover what your child goes through every day. You will come to understand his struggles with things you take for granted, such as reading, writing, memory, and following directions.

Your child's bright future starts with understanding his secret life!
