Tips on how to help a child with hyperlexia, as well as various hyperlexia intervention strategies and hyperlexia teaching strategies that parents and educators can use.

Of all the things that I get messages about, the ones regarding hyperlexia are always my favorite. Sometimes they are personal stories about raising a child with hyperlexia and other times they are simply a quick note to thank me for writing and sharing about J's hyperlexia. However, there always seems to be an underlying theme in all of the messages: the desire for more information and more resources about hyperlexia.

And I agree.

I remember, after J's diagnosis, rushing home to start my search for anything regarding hyperlexia, only to be sorely disappointed in the lack of resources available for parents.

I wanted to change that.

So I wrote about our hyperlexia story.

And then I occasionally wrote a few more posts about hyperlexia and gathered as many resources as I could on my hyperlexia resources page.

But there was still a gap in information for parents of children with hyperlexia.

In an attempt to fill that gap, I have decided to write a series of posts dedicated to hyperlexia. It's only fitting to do it ABC-style considering we have lived and breathed letters since J's toddlerhood. So this series of posts called The ABCs of Hyperlexia will tackle common issues with raising a child with hyperlexia, provide practical tips and suggestions, and even share personal stories here and there along the way. My hope is that it will be a comprehensive resource for parents, and also for the professionals that interact with our children, so that we can improve the lives of our hyperlexic children and raise awareness for it.

Because, let's be honest, so few people even know hyperlexia exists!

If you are new to hyperlexia, then I suggest starting off by learning what hyperlexia is before diving into this list of posts below.
