‘Accessing Books – A Guide for Dyslexic Adults’ (new publication)

‘Accessing Books – A Guide for Dyslexic Adults’ is a free resource which:

  • explores various options that dyslexics can use to succeed with books;
  • provides tips, ideas and information; and
  • is written by a dyslexic adult

‘This excellent guide will, I am sure, be welcomed by the many dyslexic people who feel they are being denied the enjoyment of reading a good book. The author has a thorough understanding of dyslexic difficulties and the frustrations that can accompany these. She offers a wealth of suggestions for the ways in which dyslexic people can enter and enjoy the world of the written word – whether for the purpose of study, work or pleasure.’  Dr Sylvia Moody, Practitioner Psychologist
