Dyslexia and Stress ius edited by TR Miles OBE of the School of Psychology. University of Wales, Bangor.

Though a good deal is known about the remediation of dyslexics of all ages, there is growing awareness among teachers and others that there is much more to their work than teaching literacy skills.

Most of us experience stress at some time in our lives, but experience suggests that dyslexics are particularly vulnerable to it.

This is the first book to present documented evidence on this subject.

The second edition of Dyslexia and Stress has been substantially revised and contains contributions from both dyslexics and non-dyslexics.

Many of the contributors to the first edition have substantially rewritten their original chapters.

Among the new contributors, Lindsay Peer, former Education Director at the British Dyslexia Association, provides telling evidence of the stresses encountered by dyslexic children and their parents, while Melanie Jameson, who is advisor to the Adult Dyslexia Organisation, discusses the ways in which stresses among dyslexics can sometimes lead to miscarriages of justice in courts of law.

Five further contributors, themselves dyslexic, describe the many ways in which dyslexia has affected their own and other people's lives.
