Dyslexia Insight #3: What It Takes for a Dyslexic Kid to Love Books

For the first time in my life, I officially love books. That’s because today, I published one. It’s a step-by-step plan to help parents of kids who are dyslexic like me find the path that will allow their children to love books, too. For someone who always felt left out when others began discussing literature, this is a profound moment. It was such a powerful experience that it was the main thing I talked about in the audiobook author interview, an interview I asked the publisher to offer for free.   As a dyslexic person, reading is like having a bad cell phone connection to a page. Information drops out, and I can’t access the content. When I listen to a book on tape or a talking computer, it’s like having a landline. Mainstream readers “eye read”; people who are blind and use Braille “finger read”; I “ear read.”
