The Learning Possibilities Store contains books by authors that had a reading or learning disability. I have also included parent resources by authors that also had a learning disability such as dyslexia.
These books will be very encouraging to your child as you read them together. Your child will see that they aren't the only ones in the world who struggle with learning to read.
The resource books should also be encouraging to every parent who has a child with a learning disability, dyslexia or ADHD as the books are by authors who struggled with these disabilities and have been successful despite their struggles while growing up.
