Endorsement from Jenny Lee, National Adult Dyslexia Coordinator, Dyslexia Action:

“This is a comprehensive, invaluable and extremely readable book giving in-depth information and guidance on a wide range of issues affecting professionals who work with dyslexic employees. For me, it is a rare find; the authors do not shy away from the most controversial issues, indeed they confront them head-on, revealing their (and our) dilemmas. They share their internal debates and in doing so both reassure us and give practical advice born out of real experience. This excellent book is a must for workplace consultants and indeed anyone working with dyslexic people.  I strongly recommend it.”

The Dyslexic Advantage: Unlocking the Hidden Potential of the Dyslexic Brain

Brock Eide and Fernette Eide

What links Winston Churchill, Alan Sugar, Richard Branson, Jamie Oliver, David Bailey, Will Smith and countless other high achievers in a huge range of fields?

Neuro-learning experts Drs Brock and Fernette Eide describe an exciting new brain science that reveals that people with dyslexia have unique brain structure and organisation. While the differences are responsible for certain challenges with literacy and reading, the dyslexic brain also gives a predisposition to important skills and special talents.

Dyslexics often excel in such areas of reasoning as mechanical (required for architects and surgeons), interconnected (artists and inventors); narrative (novelists and lawyers), and dynamic (scientists and business pioneers).

Dr Helen Likierman & Dr Valerie Muter

Many children spend their entire school lives struggling with their school work and with school learning. They may feel that whatever they do it is not good enough - either for their parents, their teachers or indeed themselves. This can often result in feelings of demoralisation, and even alienation from learning and school. This book aims to address these issues and to help parents understand and deal with them.

Both authors, practising psychologists, show parents how to develop a successful approach to assessing and subsequently managing their child's difficulties.
