WRStone ,

I wish I had it growing up with dyslexia!

I was a recent guest on the podcast and I cannot recommend it highly enough! Darius is a brilliant host. The strategies and systematic apporaches that Dyslexia Exlpored looks at really demystify a lot of the confusion caused by dyslexia. It is so important for children and parents to understand that dyslexia is not a death sentence. So much can be done to help dyslexics cope and this is exactly what the podcast does.

Lol it's me ,

The best podcast on dyslexia for parents of ‘Tweens’

Ok, So I’m biased because I’m the host of the show :) But there really is nothing out there like this for parents of 10-15yr olds. This podcast fills the gap between those that very effectively cover the early years or adult hood.

I am so impressed by all the guests who share their stories of how they navigated the teens. And where they have found their feet.

It’s fascinating to connect with peoples stories.

Highly recommend this for parents and tutors.

The other podcasts are great too. Especially “Dyslexia Quest”, “Dyslexia’s my Superpower” and “Codpast”.

SalCle ,

Really good podcast

I am learning so much from this podcast as a parent in the understanding of dyslexia. I would welcome some notes detailing recommended books, apps etc throughout the podcast as I am often multitasking and don’t have pen and paper to hand.
Thanks
