"After we found out that Elliott had dyslexia we wanted to sit down and talk with him about what dyslexia was, what that meant and how he felt. Like many parents and carers in this situation, at the time we felt completely overwhelmed by the whole experience, not really knowing where to start. We felt isolated, stressed and in need of reliable information, resources and support. We did our best to answer Elliott’s questions but looking back we would have loved to have a short booklet which we could have shared together as a family. A simple guide suitable for primary school aged children that could have supported us through the questions we had and the feelings we needed to express and share”.
It’s written by Parent Champion Emma Seymour and her son Elliott (8) who has dyslexia.
