Dyslexia is a common diagnosable condition that is estimated to affect at least one child in ten. In its most usual form it is manifested as a difficulty in learning to read and write, but it is widely misunderstood and often mistaken for low intelligence or even laziness.
Dr Beve Hornsby combines her experience as a psychologist, teacher and speech therapist in this informative and reassuring book for parents and teachers of children suffering from a disability no-one can see or understand, and offers advice on how to identify, tackle and eventually overcome dyslexia. Includes up-to-date information on Attention Deficit Disorder and the relevance of the latest Education Act.
Professor Beve Hornsby was one of the great pioneers of the Dyslexia movement. A Chartered Psychologist and Speech Therapist, she was formerly Head of the Dyslexia Clinic at St Bartholemew's Hospital and Principal of the Hornsby International Dyslexia Centre in London.
