-Teachers Pay Teachers Review
"The Dyslexia Reading Well U.S. Parent Guide is an
outstanding, comprehensive publication that is packed with valuable
advice, tools and resources!
In a clear and concise manor, Michael Bates walks parents through the process of understanding dyslexia, finding the right academic support and remediation, and locating the best resources in ones community. He makes the confusing and often intimidating process manageable and his easy to read text, images and colorful tables will help empower you as a parent. I’m a learning specialist myself and will be referring my parents to this guide."
- Dr. Erica Warren, educational psychologist, teacher, tutor, author of over 80 dyslexia related teaching tools and founder of LearningtoLearn.biz
The guide has a regular price of $11.99. There are no shipping fees since the guide is only available as an e-book.
If the guide helps you make one informed decision regarding assessment, an individual education plan, tutoring, software or a school, it will easily pay for itself many times over. For the price of about 15 minutes of tutoring we hope to help you avoid many of the expensive pitfalls we experienced.
Funds raised make this website possible. Thank you for your support.
Your purchase is risk-free. If
you're not satisfied with the Guide, just email us within 30 days of
your date of purchase, and we will issue a 100% refund immediately. No questions asked. Your purchase is 100% safe.
Is the guide available in hard copy or only in e-book format?
At the moment, the guide is available in e-book format only. In the near future we hope to offer a hard copy version. The guide can be read on every major tablet and e-reader including iPad, Kindle Kobo and Nook.
Why isn't the guide free?
Keeping our website up to date and continually adding new content is a labor of love, but it is also expensive and time-intensive. While all content on the website is free of charge and there are no pay walls, we have to find ways of supporting the site. Revenue from the guide makes the site possible.
Note that a lot of the information in the guide can be found on our website. The guide is a condensed version of essential content in a convenient e-book format, with additional resources added that are not yet available on the site, but may eventually appear there, such as the state-by-state resource and legislation tables.
What format is the guide in?
The guide is an interactive Adobe PDF document that you can save to your computer or laptop and view on a tablet or smartphone. From there, you can read the book on screen or print out and bind the entire e-book or just the pages you want.
You probably already have a PDF reader, but if your computer doesn't have the software, you can download Adobe Reader for free.
I don't have PayPal, can I still buy it?
Yes, you can choose the option of paying by credit card during the checkout process. You will not have to create any accounts at PayPal or our site. The whole process should take just minutes.
Are there bulk discounts?
Yes. Please inquire for purchases over 10 copies.
Can people outside the U.S. buy the guide?
Absolutely. While intended for U.S. parents, the majority of the content is still valuable for parents from the U.K, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. The same risk free purchase guarantee applies for those outside the U.S.
Note that a U.K. and Canadian guide are in the works.
I never received my download link
You should receive an e-mail with your download link within approximately one hour of making payment.
There are several reasons why you may not have received your e-mail.
If the transaction appears to have taken place smoothly, your email is correct and hasn't been filtered, and you still don't receive your link, just contact us through the website, with details of your transaction (date, time, name, method of payment). We will follow up within 24 hours.
Why has my download link expired?
Your link is unique
to your purchase and is valid for 7 days or 3 download attempts. If the
link has expired or you have made too many attempts to download, then
you will see the "expired" message.
Just contact us through the website and explain your situation. We will get back to you with a new link as soon as possible. Be sure to provide the details of your transaction to help us track it down, including date purchased, your name and method of payment.
On a desktop computer be sure to save the file to the folder of your choice.
On an iPad, when you download and then open the document, you will be asked which application to use. We suggest you open the guide with iBooks, where it will be saved along with all of your PDF documents. iBooks is loaded with many convenient reading features and accessibility functions including text-to-speech.
Other tablets and smart-phones will provide you their own options for saving the document depending upon the applications used. If you have downloaded the e-book to your desktop but wish to view it on your e-reader, you will have to follow the steps for your particular e-reader, available online. This is usually a very easy process, taking only a few minutes.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments please feel free to contact us anytime. We hope you enjoy the guide!
