It draws upon hitherto neglected psychological concepts such as self-efficacy, locus of control and learned helplessness to explain within a social-interactivist framework the powerful effect of self-perceptions on the social, emotional and academic development of dyslexics. Techniques for assessing these factors are described and research evidence is provided to demonstrate how a sense of dyslexic pride associated with positive academic outcomes can be achieved.
The book is aimed at teachers, teacher-trainers, parents and academics researching developmental aspects of dyslexia, but combines scholarship and research in a manner that makes it accessible to adult dyslexics also.
