Reviews about Dyslexia Advocate from other experts:

"As the parent or educator of a child with dyslexia, you must learn all you can about dyslexia. This is the best book out there to get you started. It is easy to read, clear and understandable, and will become your primary reference book. Do your homework and read this book!"
-(Pete Wright, a dyslexic ADHD attorney, former law professor, author of numerous books about special education, co-founder of theWrightslaw.com website)

"Kelli Sandman-Hurley has been and is my 'go to person' when I have a question on dyslexia. Her knowledge of dyslexia is truly extensive and her championing for children is well known in California and other states as well. Kelli takes every opportunity to work on behalf of children with dyslexia, from working directly with parents and children, to schools and speaking at legislative hearings. I continue to seek her advice and often refer parents from across the country to reach out to Kelli for assistance, when they are in need of expert advice on issues of dyslexia."
-(Vaughn K. Lauer Ph.D., Educational Learning and Training, LLC, author of When the School Says No…How to Get the Yes!)

"Dr Kelli's Dyslexia Advocate is the resource I needed when I began my journey as a parent advocating for my dyslexic child. It provides parents with practical, in-depth knowledge while encouraging collaboration, patience and perseverance - all integral to a successful IEP team process."
-(Lyn Pollard, Parent Advocate and Mother of a 10-year old child with Dyslexia)

"Dr Sandman-Hurley is spot on when she says 'advocating for a student with dyslexia requires you to raise awareness about dyslexia. This book is a great resource to help parents and professionals do both!"
(Deborah Lynam, Parent, Decoding Dyslexia NJ)

Reviews about Dyslexia & Spelling: Making Sense of it All from other experts:

"Spelling is hard if you have to learn it on your own! But when you understand the systems that are used in English to spell words, it makes a lot more sense. This book takes a morphological approach to teaching all students with dyslexia to spell and write, but the ideas apply much more widely to students who struggle or who have been undertaught. This is a great resource on the English language that teachers and parents can use to help unlock the code and help students communicate their ideas with the world."
Douglas Fisher, Ph.D., Professor & Chair, Department of Educational Leadership, San Diego State University

"This book is a must read for all teachers, not only those working with children who find spelling difficult. Sandman-Hurley demystifies the spelling of English words and provides numerous effective activities for spelling instruction. After reading Dyslexia and Spelling, teachers will no longer see spelling as a memory task but one based on the 'sense and elegance of the English writing system.'"
Marcia K. Henry, PhD. Author, Unlocking Literacy: Effective Decoding and Spelling Instruction; Former president, The International Dyslexia Association; Professor Emerita, San Jose State University

"Kelli Sandman Hurley shines a bright light on a profound insight about spelling and dyslexia that has been in front of us all along yet few of us understand. Embrace this fabulous book and let it be a first step to learning more."
