The Dyslexic Advantage: Unlocking the Hidden Potential of the Dyslexic Brain by Brock and Fernette Eide is a refreshing look at dyslexia! Each chapter classifies the varied strengths of individuals with dyslexia. As I read the book, children with whom I have worked pop into my head. The book discusses strengths of those with dyslexia, rather than delving into their difficulties. Brock and Fernette explain that dyslexia is not simply a reading problem, but a dissimilar form of brain organization that yields remarkable positives. The difficulties should be seen only as minor stumbling blocks. Their gift of looking at life differently is too valuable to be overlooked. We totally agree!
