The Dyslexic Adult in A Non Dyslexic World by Ellen Morgan, Cynthia Klein

The Dyslexic Adult in A Non Dyslexic World

Description : The Dyslexic Adult in a non-dyslexic world is aimed at teachers, employers, careers advisers, counsellors and any others who work with, support or live with dyslexic adults. Using case studies and adult "voices" to illustrate and elaborate their points, the authors explore a range of issues affecting dyslexic adults. The book approaches the understanding of dyslexia through the perspective of the dyslexic adult and through examining the dyslexic "cognitive style" and its impact on how this affects dyslexic adults in their personal, academic and work lives. The Dyslexic Adult explores the importance of diagnosis and discusses many of the contentious issues surrounding the assessment of dyslexic adults. It suggests strategies and creative solutions for dyslexic difficulties as well as ways of exploiting dyslexic strengths. Finally, it takes a look into the future, suggesting that changes in the 21st century may alter perceptions of dyslexia and the opportunities for roles which dyslexic adults play in society, and encourages the non-dyslexic world to value the contributions which dyslexic adults can make.
