Summary This book offers a comprehensive look at the world of dyslexic adults based on their personal experiences and perspectives. The authors use case studies and adult 'voices' to illuminate issues affecting dyslexic adults coping with the demands of a non-dyslexic world. They examine 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
