READING DAVID by Lissa Weinstein, Ph.D.
Publisher Perigee/Putnam, September 2003
"This book is a riveting and informative read. Lissa and David
have laid bare not only the facts of dyslexia, but also the stark human
emotions that lie beneath the label ‘learning disabled.’ I wish every
teacher could read it and understand! "
"READING DAVID is both heart wrenching and uplifting. Mother and
son have written a poignant and compelling account of how dyslexia affects
the whole family. "
"This is a lovely book. Every child with dyslexia should “meet”
David so he can help them through the diagnosis and treatment of this
common problem. I and other adults who read this will want to take David
"I couldn't put this book down. A gripping story of a mother's
discovery of her son's dyslexia and her efforts to help him. Suddenly
finding herself on the treatment side of the psychologist-patient
relationship, the psychologist mother must come to terms with her own
powerful reactions. Parents trying to understand their child's learning
disability will find this book a great comfort, not because it provides
easy answers, but because it portrays the struggle so honestly.
Wonderfully written by both the mother and the son."
“Lissa and David’s honesty, painful insights, and heroic journey
through the mystery of learning challenges really helped me understand my
past that I only guessed at until now.”
