Do you know someone (an adult) you think might be dyslexic, but they’re unaware of it? How do you tackle the subject sensitively, so as not to offend them? If, like me, they had very little knowledge of dyslexia, how do you help them to understand, right from the start, that it’s OK … and there’s nothing ‘wrong’ with them?
Book Launch – Video Coming Soon
WELCOME TO MY BLOG.
My book “Dyslexia – An Amazing Discovery” is now available from www.eloquentbooks.com/DyslexiaAnAmazingDiscovery.html , or online from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ABE, etc. It can also be ordered from any bookshop. Buy a copy and read my story.
It has been an amazing discovery and an amazing experience writing about it. It started as an article in the NSW Writers Centre magazine. Lots of people told me that it was an inspiring story and that I should write a book. So I did, and it is now being launched in Australia, the UK and the US. The first launch event was in Sydney on Monday 15 March at Gleebooks.
I would welcome your comments on the book, and I would love to hear your stories. Are you dyslexic or know someone who is? Was it picked up early or missed as in my case? Was it an experience of adversity, triumph over adversity, an unhappy experience, a happy ending?
Do you see dyslexia as a disability, simply a diffferent ability, or a gift that can even be an advantage over those who are not dyslexic?
