By Brock L. Eide M.D. M.A. and Fernette F. Eide M.D.
A must read for parents, educators, and people with dyslexia.
Did you know that many successful architects, lawyers, engineers—even bestselling novelists—had difficulties learning to read and write as children?
In this groundbreaking book, Brock and Fernette Eide explain how 20% of people — individuals with dyslexia — share a unique learning style that can create advantages in a classroom, at a job, or at home. Using their combined expertise in neurology and education, the authors show how these individuals not only perceive the written word differently but may also excel at spatial reasoning, see insightful connections that others simply miss, understand the world in stories, and display amazing creativity.
