Product Description

This book is intended for parents and educators who have a child or work with a child who has hyperlexia. The suggestions in this book are geared towards small children, but may be relevant for older children and preteens as well. It does not cover teenage or adult topics such as puberty, relationships, or driving.

Parents of children with autism, without hyperlexia, may also find the strategies and accommodations in this book helpful. However, the focus is primarily on hyperlexic children and their unique skills and challenges.

Sorted into four main categories, this book addresses common issues or challenges associated with raising a child with hyperlexia: (1) social skills, (2) speech, language, and reading, (3) practical life, and (4) other. The list of topics addressed in this book are ones that other parents of hyperlexic children helped me to compile.

Each topic in this book includes a short description of how these issues or challenges may present itself in a hyperlexic child. Then a list of strategies and accommodations are given to address that particular challenge or issue. These strategies are ones that we have personally tried or had success with or that other hyperlexia families have tried.
