Dyslexia Advocate! By Kelli Sandman-Hurley

From Dr. Hart: Dr. Sandman-Hurley has been able to beautifully weave together the key information we need to have when learning how to advocate for our children with dyslexia.   She aggregates the core information you need in one place so that you don’t have to search all over the web. Not only has she pulled the information together into one place but she “wraps” it in really solid and grounded advice and wisdom.

There is so much I like about this book.  I often speak of the importance of helping parents “build a map” for understanding how to navigate the crazy, hair-pulling process of getting appropriate services for our dyslexic kids.  Dr. Sandman Hurley does just that.

About Dyslexia Advocate!

This straightforward guide provides the essential information for parents and advocates to understand US law and get the right educational entitlements for a child with dyslexia. Using case studies and examples, this book demonstrates clearly how to apply the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to the unique requirements of a dyslexic child. It offers simple, intelligible help for parents on how to coordinate successfully with their child’s school and achieve the right services and support for their dyslexic child; up to and beyond getting an effective Individual Education Plan (IEP). Dyslexia- Decoding the System is an invaluable tool for parents trying to negotiate a complex legal system in order to get the best outcome for their child. It is an essential guide for anyone who is considering acting as an advocate for a child with dyslexia. Sourced from Dyslexia Training Institute.
