This text tells the story of 12-year old Alexander Faludy, a dyslexic child with exceptional intellectual ability. The facts are related both from his own perspective, as he recounts the isolation and confusion of a child who is progressively rejected, and from that of his parents. The authors describe how, from being a child unable to fulfil his potential in the educational system, Alexander became an example of a new approach to dyslexia. By concentrating on his abilities rather than using the conventional method of remedial treatment for his weaknesses, Alexander and his parents broke the mould, providing a dyslexic child with a unique opportunity to fulfil his potential.
