What it says on the back of book Ellen Morgan, Dyslexia Support Service, University of North London and Cynthia Klein, London Language and Literacy Unit, South bank University. The Dyslexic Adult in a Non-Dyslexic World offers a comprehensive look at the world of dyslexic adults based on their personal experiences and perspectives. Aimed at teachers, employers, career advisers, counsellors and others who work with, support or live with dyslexic adults, the authors use case studies and adult 'voices' to illuminate issues affecting dyslexic adults coping with the demands of a non-dyslexic world. They examined the dyslexic 'cognitive style' as a central influence on individuals' personal, educational and work lives and explore the liberating impact of diagnosis and the insights it brings to dyslexic adults, as well as discuss key issues in diagnosing adults. The book suggests strategies and creative solutions for addressing dyslexic difficulties and stresses the importance of capitalising on dyslexic strengths. Finally, it takes a look into the future, suggesting that changes in the 21st century may alter both perceptions of dyslexia and opportunities for dyslexic adults, and encourages the nondyslexic world to value the creative contributions which dyslexic adults can make.
