Masterful and brilliant yet simple and understandable, Reversing Dyslexia exposes the myth of dyslexia as being a permanent, life-long condition. Dr. Books challenges the traditional and deep-seeded educational and medical models of dyslexia that have narrowly construed the causes of the condition and reduced its treatment compensatory tools. She poignantly defines the “dyslexia spectrum syndrome” as a complexity of neurobiological issues that relate to brain synchronization and neurological dysregulation. She demonstrates that overcoming learning disabilities requires a multi-disciplined approach based on biology, neuroscience, psychology, diet, exercise and perhaps most importantly, loving and compassionate intervention by both parent and practitioner. Speaking simultaneously in the voices of a scientist, educator, chiropractor, mother and grandmother of three young boys, Dr. Books has written the consummate primer for parents of dyslexic children, guiding them through the confusing maze of cultural misinformation on the subject.As an attorney who has represented alternative healthcare practitioners over three decades in the relentless tension between mainstream medicine’s rigid focus on the treatment of bodily symptoms and the alternative approach of addressing the body as a holistic organism, I can confidently recommend Reversing Dyslexia as a “whole person” approach to shedding the limitations of dyslexia. It is a must-read for anyone whose life has been affected by a loved one with any learning disorder.
