The degree of difficulty a child with dyslexia has with reading, spelling, and/or speaking varies from person to person due to inherited differences in brain development, as well as the type of teaching the child receives. The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) has made available the IDA Dyslexia Handbook, which offers valuable information about dyslexia and its characteristics. In addition, the handbook provides information on appropriate assessment tools, effective teaching approaches, self-advocacy ideas, and a vast array of resources. Further, the handbook contains information that will be useful throughout a child’s life, from elementary school through college.
