Previous ed.: published as by D.E. Gilroy and T.R. Miles. 1996.

This fully updated third edition contains practical and useful advice that will be invaluable for students with dyslexia, their parents and all of those involved in teaching and supporting them in their studies.

Including the latest research into dyslexia, changes in legislation and information technology and the real-life experiences of six former Bangor students, this book will: guide students through the process of applying for university, suggesting strategies for general organisation and for particular aspects of study; outline how to get the best personally and academically from higher education; give practical advice on setting up and using support facilities (both human and technological); and, be an accessible text for mainstream lecturers and tutors who need to be aware of the implications of the Disability Discrimination Act.

New chapters include 'Dyslexia plus', giving information on dyspraxia, attention disorders, Asperger's syndrome, and the more controversial 'dyscalculia'. "Out of College and into Work" gives advice for students on the challenges they face after graduation.
