The only book on dyslexia written especially for teenagers (14-18 years) with their specific needs in mind Dyslexia, involving problems with reading, writing, spelling, memory, organization and time management, can affect people of all backgrounds and abilities.
But diagnosis and self-help books are geared to the very young - little is done to help the older child who faces unique problems and requires different strategies to solve them.
At a time when unaffected children have problems with self-esteem; are challenged at school and have to cope with extensive revision for exams, the dyslexic child can be totally at sea. "Dyslexia: A Teenager's Guide" helps young adults tackle these problems with practical strategies uniquely suited to them.
Clearly and simply written by a leading expert in the field, the book helps with reading, writing, spelling, memory and provides tips on how to take notes and organize study; how to deal with exams and use IT.
It also shows how to improve confidence and assertiveness, and how to build on the creative talent that many dyslexics have.
