Dyslexia - involving problems with reading, writing, spelling, memory, organisation and time management - can affect people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. But most books on this subject are geared towards young children; advice for teenagers is thin on the ground. Yet dyslexic teenagers face special problems. They need to master complex study skills, deal with large amounts of revision, and cope with the demands of examinations. They may suffer from stress, anxiety and lack of confidence.
This book helps young adults tackle these problems with strategies uniquely suited to their needs. Clearly and simply written by a leading expert in the field, it helps with reading, writing, spelling and memory, as well as giving tips on how to take notes, organise study, deal with examinations and use IT. It also shows how to improve confidence, deal with stress and build on the creative talent that many dyslexics possess.
