Winston Churchill, Andy Warhol, Tom Cruise, Agatha Christie, Pablo Picasso. All famous and successful in their chosen professions. All dyslexic. But what is dyslexia? Are there different types of dyslexia? Is it more likely to occur in boys than in girls? Is there a cure?

Chapters consider the importance of sound and vision to reading, the assessment and management of dyslexia, and lists of dedicated dyslexia resources including support associations, books, websites, and assistive technology.
 
With its engaging and accessible writing style, this book is an indispensable resource for parents of children with dyslexia, for young people and adults with dyslexia, and for teachers and special educational needs co-ordinators everywhere.
