Dyslexia - A Beginner's Guide

69.jpg
Winston Churchill, Andy Warhol, Walt Disney, Tom Cruise, Agatha Christie, Pablo Picasso are all famous and successful in their chosen professions. All are dyslexic. Around 5 to 15 per cent of speakers of alphabetic languages (e.g. English, French and Spanish) are dyslexic; around 4 per cent severely so. 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? What resources are available to help dyslexic children and adults? Nicola Brunswick answers these, and other, questions informed by current thinking and cutting-edge research. This title includes chapters on the causes and symptoms of dyslexia, the importance of sound and vision to reading, the incidence and manifestation of dyslexia across alphabetic and non-alphabetic languages, and lists of dedicated dyslexia resources - support associations, websites, and assistive technology.
