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. 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, and how to deal with exams. It also shows how to improve confidence and assertiveness, and how to build on the creative talent that many dyslexics have.
