Winston Churchill, Andy Warhol, Walt Disney, Tom Cruise, Agatha Christie, Pablo Picasso.

All famous and successful in their chosen professions.

All dyslexic. Around 5 to 15% of speakers of alphabetic languages (e.g.

English, French and Spanish) are dyslexic; around 4% severely so.

But what is dyslexia? Are there different types of dyslexia? Is it more likely to occur in boys than in girls? Is there a cure? What resources are available to help dyslexic children and adults?

Nicola Brunswick answers these, and other, questions informed by current thinking and cutting-edge research.

Includes chapters on the causes and symptoms of dyslexia, the importance of sound and vision to reading, the incidence and manifestation of dyslexia across alphabetic and non-alphabetic languages, and lists of dedicated dyslexia resources - support associations, websites, and assistive technology.
