Description

In the workplace, dyslexia can be the root cause of under-performance that manifests itself in ways other than those typically associated with child dyslexics.

Adult Dyslexia gives practical advice about identifying and helping adult dyslexics in ways that are relevant to the workplace and suitable for adults, rather than being adaptations of methods used with children.
* Written by an experienced occupational psychologist
* Includes a practical question/answer section and screening tools
* Emphasises that dyslexics have strengths as well as weaknesses
* An invaluable tool for managers to help develop dyslexic employees
