Read about the course below …

“Many parents worry that, although they feel they understand their child, they don’t feel they understand his dyslexia. Just as the hardworking dyslexic child is left with feelings of inadequacy after every class test, so his caring, dedicated parents are left feeling ineffectual when they sit down to help him with his homework.”
Richard Whitehead,  author of Why Tyrannosaurus But Not If?

Here are some comments from my earlier WhyTy courses:

The course offers a great insight into how dyslexic people process words and how to help children to access words better.

Do this course!! It has helped me and calmed me when helping my 7 year old son.
Great course for parents who really are feeling at a loss as to how to approach helping their dyslexic child. Helps understanding of the challenges facing the child and provides an insight into solutions to help them access the written word. Informative. Interesting and Helpful.
