The only book on dyslexia written especially for teenagers (14-18 years) with their specific needs in mind Dyslexia, involving problems with reading, writing, spelling, memory, organization and time management, can affect people of all backgrounds and abilities. But diagnosis and self-help books are geared to the very young - little is done to help the older child who faces unique problems and requires different strategies to solve them. At a time when unaffected children have problems with self-esteem; are challenged at school and have to cope with extensive revision for exams, the dyslexic child can be totally at sea. "Dyslexia: A Teenager's Guide" helps young adults tackle these problems with practical strategies uniquely suited to them. Clearly and simply written by a leading expert in the field, the book helps with reading, writing, spelling, memory and provides tips on how to take notes and organize study; how to deal with exams and use IT. It also shows how to improve confidence and assertiveness, and how to build on the creative talent that many dyslexics have. Author Bio: Dr. Sylvia Moody has a PhD in Psychology, a diploma in Clinical Psychology and is Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. She runs the Dyslexia Assessment Service in London. She has written children's books and is co-author of "Dyslexia in the Workplace" (Whurr Publishers, The Dyslexia Adults Link Book of the Year 2000).
