- Proust and the Squid: The Story and Science of the Reading Brain
This is a wonderful book by Maryanne Wolf that explains that humans weren’t born to read. Knowing this she outlines why it’s particularly challenging for a dyslexic brain to learn how to read because it’s relying on the brain’s ability to be able to learn something new. Understanding the history of reading is a real game changer in understanding your child’s challenges.
