  • 7. Book Foreword By Bernadette McLean Principal of the Helen Arkell Dyslexia Centre ‘This comprehensive book celebrates the difference in style and learning that people with dyslexia bring to their worlds at home and school. Carolina speaks as a parent and as an educator, as well as offering her own dyslexic perspective. TIME FOR TALENT is accessible, informative and positive. It works right through the age range to adulthood and this journey of support is made credible by the many case studies showing dyslexia alongside co-existing difficulties. Refer to it as a complete book of recipes – some for now, some for later. Or, treat it like the road map that Carolina offers and get on with your journey wherever you are. The comprehensive nature of TIME FOR TALENT means that many holistic approaches are included for those who want to add these to their toolkit.’
  • 8. Reviewed by Teodora Totorean for Readers' Favorite Rating: 5.0 stars The book Dyslexia: Time for Talent by Carolina Fröhlich is written from the perspective of a person with dyslexia, a parent with dyslexic children, and a support teacher for pupils with dyslexia. The author is all of the above and through this book she proves to be a great story teller, a talented writer, and a thorough researcher. The book offers in-depth information about various aspects of what it means to have dyslexia, including the identification of struggles with reading and writing in children, different approaches and learning techniques, getting an assessment, offering children the right support and building up their self-esteem. The main idea of the book is that dyslexia is not a condition that someone needs to be “cured” of, it is only a different way of learning. Through a personalized teaching/learning approach, every child with dyslexia can find his own talent and become a successful adult. Dyslexia: Time for Talent is a well-written and well-documented book, very informative and useful for parents and teachers alike who work with children with dyslexia. Every problem has a solution and this is illustrated through charts and examples from Fröhlich’s own experience as a parent with dyslexic children. The author also emphasises that every dyslexic child is different and parents and teachers should identify what their strengths and weaknesses are so they can adapt the teaching methods accordingly. Learning through art, music, or sports are just a few examples of such methods. But the book doesn’t stop at primary school years; it also offers advice on how to deal with the condition in later years too, from secondary school and further education to learning to drive and getting the relevant career advice. As there are still people that are diagnosed later in life, I found those chapters extremely useful. This is the kind of book that should be in every household with a dyslexic family member, so it can be consulted at any time.
  • 9. Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite Rating: 5.0 stars Dyslexia: Time For Talent - The Ultimate Guide for Parents and Children by Carolina Frohlich is an educational guide on dyslexia. The book addresses dyslexia from all angles and covers every aspect of it. There is a lot of information which will be helpful and useful to parents, caregivers, teachers, and others who work with these children. The author has used her experience as a teacher to address the issues faced by people dealing with dyslexic children. There are other disorders that co-exist with dyslexia and the author has covered those topics as well. The author tells readers how the problems faced by dyslexic children can be handled well to make these kids more confident when it comes to facing society. The book is packed with information and tips for those working with dyslexic kids. The author's observations and knowledge about dyslexia is remarkable and it is wonderful that she decided to share this in a book. The author has also shared her experiences as the mother of dyslexic children, as well as many true stories of other parents and children and how these children can be made to feel normal. The book can actually change your perspective on how you look at dyslexic children. This is essential reading for every parent with a dyslexic child.
  • 10. Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite Rating: 5.0 stars Dyslexia: Time For Talent: The Ultimate Guide for Parents and Children by Carolina Frohlich is a helpful guide for parents who have children with dyslexia. The guide helps parents to work with dyslexia and shows how they can work with their children from the time they are young through to adulthood. It takes a holistic perspective to the problem and addresses emotional, behavioral, social, spiritual, and academic points. I got this book to read so I could help a friend with her child who has dyslexia and other learning disabilities. She (and I) are of a core belief that it takes a village of support and since I spend a great deal of time with her and her daughter I felt it good to study up as well. Carolina Frohlich has created a great read here that is very informative with lessons that are going to go so far in helping my friend's daughter. The points are well written, well organized, and more than expressive. I came away from reading this feeling empowered and well educated. I love how it shows you new ways to find talents and create self esteem without seeming like it is coming from an obligatory fake place. I have read so many books that offer well meaning advice, but it sounds like it comes from one of those motivational posters you see in offices. While those posters are nice, they are not 'one size fits all.' Dyslexia: Time for Talent is a breath of fresh air with fresh ideas. I gladly recommended this one as a read for my friend and would do the same for any parent who has a child with dyslexia.
  • 11. Reviewed by Maria Beltran for Readers' Favorite Rating: 5.0 stars Carolina Frohlich, author of Dyslexia, Time For Talent: The Ultimate Guide for Parents and Children, has come up with a book that not only teaches us how to deal with this special learning condition, but also changes our general understanding of dyslexia. Combining the academic and holistic approach, the book starts with a chapter on Personal and Children’s Stories that make parents with dyslexic children feel that they are not completely alone in the world. She continues by giving a clear definition of dyslexia and by discussing the holistic needs of these special children. The next chapters include Our Children’s Education, Supporting Your Child’s Learning and Your Young Adult. As these titles suggest, this book is a great help in dealing with dyslexic children as they blossom into successful adults. Dyslexia, Time For Talent is designed to guide parents and teachers in nurturing dyslexic children so that they can achieve their full potential. Surprisingly easy to read, this is a book that seemingly contains all the answers in dealing with this special condition. Stressing the importance of an early assessment, the book certainly helps us understand a dyslexic mind. A dyslexic herself and with children coping with similar conditions, Frohlich is proof that nothing should stop a child with dyslexia from succeeding in any field that he or she chooses. This is especially true if parents and teachers follow this comprehensive guide. In the end, it makes me realize that dyslexia should not be a diagnosis to fear but is simply a special condition that calls for a special understanding. This book is an informative and interesting read!
  • 12. Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite Rating: 5.0 stars “Understanding our children’s frustrations and giving them the tools to blossom will give them the confidence to reach their true potential,” says Carolina Fröhlich in Dyslexia: Time for Talent. That is precisely what her book does. Not only is it a book which informs and encourages the special skills and talents of dyslexic learners, but it is also a definitive reference guide for those who need it for everyday use. This book is filled with personal stories which show how many families and learners have struggled with and adapted to the challenges offered by dyslexia. Readers gain an understanding of what dyslexia is and what its probable causes are. There is a deeper discussion of the holistic needs of a dyslexic child and how their emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being is tied up in understanding their special skills and talents in order to continually boost their self-confidence as they progress. Supporting the child’s education and encouraging art, music, and athletic skills along with the numerous methods for giving aid in the academic classroom is not only the job of the instructors, but should be monitored and adapted through parental involvement. As the student progresses into young adulthood, there are new methods and techniques for meeting the challenges of driving, higher education and obtaining career advice. Through each of these stages of growth and development, Carolina’s guide is supported by numerous charts and tables which help illustrate the information that she is presenting. There are also numerous appendices for further reference and information for quick reference. Dyslexia: Time for Talent is a complete guide to defining, supporting, and encouraging a dyslexic child as the struggle to maintain self-confidence and self-worth is continually bombarded by traditional learning models. Through this guide, teachers and parents alike can easily implement techniques that will boost the learning, performance, and special skills of the dyslexic learner. Practical, informative and encouraging, Dyslexia: Time for Talent is essential not only for parents and instructors who work with dyslexic children on a daily basis, but also to encourage those who have dyslexia and help them to realize that they see the world in a special light and bring a special talent to be shared with those around them.
