ABOUT THE BOOK:
SPLENDID AGONY is an informative, illuminating, and encouraging book that offers valuable insights for people with dyslexia, parents and teachers of people with dyslexia, and anyone who wants to know more about what it’s like to go through the American educational system with dyslexia. Full of applicable advice, powerful analogies, and personal stories, this book is by turns humorous and poignant, and it provides a fiercely hopeful perspective for anyone who is, teaches, or cares for a student with dyslexia.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
T. Durant Fleming was raised and educated in Memphis, Tennessee. Completing his undergraduate degree in communications, he gathered three Masters degrees, and earned his doctorate by the time he was thirty. He went on to become a career educator, first as a teacher, then a vice principal, then as a Head of School. Durant and his wife Sharon now live in the beautiful hills of north central Arkansas with their spunky miniature Schnauzers, Archie and Phoebe. Durant enjoys writing, fishing, playing the bagpipes, cooking, and photography. He is presently planning on building a wooden fishing boat in his garage. When asked, “Why did you write this book?” His answer is simple, “Because other people helped me, and that made all of the difference.”
