Student Support Spotlight, by Alissa Plaisance – October 24

Do you love books? Me too! I love the feel of a brand new, and also a very old book. In honor of our focus on Dyslexia this month, I bring you a list of books written for children with Dyslexic characters. I think all children should read fun and interesting books like these so they can develop empathy and better understand how others think. If you have a child with Dyslexia or related learning difference, I feel it is imperative that they read and see positive examples of characters like themselves in books. Reading these books together can lead to good discussion and parents can use the examples in the books to focus on a child’s strengths. As parents, you may be looking for resources that help you on the parenting journey. Here is a list of some great reads for parents.
