Why "Tyrannosaurus" But Not "If"?
Dyslexia-Inspired Strategies For Parents Of All Struggling Learners
6-session programme presented by Selena Clay online

The discovery that your child has a learning difficulty can be a frightening, disorientating experience.  Many parents worry that, although they feel they understand their child, they don’t feel they understand his dyslexia. Just as the hardworking dyslexic child is left with feelings of inadequacy after every class test, so his caring, dedicated parents are left feeling ineffectual when they sit down to help him with his homework.

- Richard Whitehead, Author of "Why Tyrannosaurus But Not If?"
