Marianne Sunderland writes from the unique perspective of a homeschooling mother of 8 children, 7 of whom are dyslexic. She says, "Writing about dyslexia is a passion of mine because of our own experience raising and teaching our kids with dyslexia. I know how it feels to be utterly confused by an otherwise bright child who just doesn’t ‘get’ reading. I know how overwhelming it was to search through web site after web site, book after book, searching for the answers. I know how many false starts and disappointments we went through before we found what really works. I saw how being unable to read and write well affected my kids as they grew up. How I wish I could go back, knowing what I know now and do things differently. "  - Marianne Sunderland Marianne writes in terms parents can really understand.
