   • Extensively updated information on helping both dyslexic children and adults become better readers, with a detailed home program to enhance reading
   • Evidence-based universal screening for dyslexia as early as kindergarten and first grade – why and how 
   • New information on how to identify dyslexia in all age ranges
   • Exercises to help children strengthen the brain areas that control reading
   • Ways to raise a child's self-esteem and reveal her strengths
