In this latest installment of School Struggles with our host Dr. Richard Selznick, we talk with Kelli Sandman-Hurley, Ed.D. regarding her book, “Dyslexia Advocate: How to Advocate for a Child with Dyslexia within the Public Education System,”
This straightforward guide provides the essential information for parents and advocates to understand US law and get the right educational entitlements for a child with dyslexia.
Using case studies and examples, this book demonstrates clearly how to apply the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to the unique requirements of a dyslexic child. It offers simple, intelligible help for parents on how to coordinate successfully with their child’s school and achieve the right services and support for their dyslexic child; up to and beyond getting an effective Individual Education Plan (IEP).
Dr. Kelli Sandman-Hurley is the co-founder of the Dyslexia Training Institute.
