    As a new elementary school teacher, who doesn’t have her own children yet, I found this book to be a really useful and needed perspective on the other side of an IEP. Specifically in terms of dyslexia but also IEPs generally. I was given a heads up that my incoming class of students includes a handful of IEPS with dyslexia as the qualifying diagnosis for SLD and wanted to read through various lenses before doing my best for them this coming year.

    This is book is the most helpful book about advocating for a child in the public school system. She gives detailed and practical information with letters and examples and goes into what good goals and outcomes look like. A criticism was that it didn’t go into detail about other reading interventions, but that is not what this book is about. Kelli Sandman-Hurley runs a site called the Dyslexia Training Institute where they run all sorts of great classes expressly on reading interventions...and mu This is book is the most helpful book about advocating for a child in the public school system.

    3.5 - very helpful and mind opening - however not much concrete information since laws and regulations vary state by state. However some solid advice that helped me in a recent IEP meeting although I will never be able to know all the in's and out's of IDEA policies to be the kind of advocate for my daughter that I would like. 3.5 - very helpful and mind opening - however not much concrete information since laws and regulations vary state by state.

    This had some really helpful, concrete suggestions for how to word IEPs and what accommodations to ask for. My context is private school, rather than pubic, so some things don’t translate, but a lot of things do. And I’m grateful for something so clear and practical.

    Great resource for parents with dyslexic children Very helpful resource in guiding you through the IEP process for a dyslexic child. I thought the section with templates for writing goals was especially helpful.

    Good overview of the IEP process and help with some common concerns. It could have used some more detailed explanations in some areas, specifically with information about specific reading interventions.

    A good refresher for me, since I'm retired, but still work with students who have IEPs or 504s as a tutor. A good refresher for me, since I'm retired, but still work with students who have IEPs or 504s as a tutor.

    I haven't read many books specifically on dyslexia - so I can't compare what this one has or omits - but I found it super helpful and gave me a lot to think about.
