Come and hear a special presentation and attend a book signing with the authors of the acclaimed book, The Dyslexic Advantage, Brock L. Eide, M.D., M.A., and Fernette Eide M.D. The event will take place this Wednesday, Nov 30 at 6:30pm at Hamlin Robinson School, an independent school in the Central District dedicated to meeting the educational, social, and emotional needs specific to students with dyslexia and related language difficulties.
In this paradigm-shifting book, the authors describe an exciting new brain science that reveals that people with dyslexia have unique brain structure and organization. While the differences are responsible for certain challenges with literacy and reading, the dyslexic brain also gives a predisposition to important skills, and special talents.
With advice for parents, educators, and dyslexics, The Dyslexic Advantage provides the first complete portrait of dyslexia. Supporting their claims with groundbreaking science and interviews with successful dyslexics and innovative teachers, the authors of this essential book show how the unique strengths of dyslexia can be captured for success at home, at school, and at work.
