Editorial Reviews

Review

In this excellent little book is a wealth of practical advice, clearly presented . . . Throughout the book, the advice is sensible, practical and helpful. It is written with great understanding and gentle humor . . . The book wisely offers advice to teachers and advisers as well as students. I hope it finds a place on their bookshelves.

Product Description

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)

• 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.
