One mom determined to get the best education for her dyslexic son, offers practical tips and advice for other parents navigating the public-school system. Both a rallying cry and an invaluable resource, One in Five details the national education crisis as it impacts the one in five children who have dyslexia. Micki Boas, mother to two dyslexic sons, wrote this book because too many parents feel isolated and defeated in their efforts to secure an equal chance for their children. After fighting the school system for six years to get the correct diagnoses and proper learning assistance for her sons, Boas realized that parents need to hack the system, cutting through the invisible red tape of school funding, IEPs, specialized teacher training, and more. Drawing on insights from over 200 parents, educators, and experts, Boas explains why most children are diagnosed too late to get the help they need, and why the majority of our schools fail to provide the special education programs mandated by law. Most important, through her own story and those of other tireless parents and leaders, she shows what you can do about it. One in Five shares the secrets the “professionals” won’t tell you—but that make all the difference.
