The new edition has a new chapter on writing your dissertation, more on spelling, more on using statistics, more on planning and timetabling techniques, more on using technology to help you, and expanded advice on preparing and giving presentations. Included with the book is a CD Rom that supplies an electronic copy of the book, editable planners and other resources, internet links to further information, templates and additional help.
'Informative, clear and well-structured, providing practical advice and excellent tips, this is a must for HE students with SpLDs and staff'

Praise for the First Edition:
'With all the contributors having completed the Postgraduate Certificate: Teaching Adult Dyslexic Learners in Higher Education…this reader felt that the study skills discussed were tried, tested and reliable. I shall recommend this book to confident undergraduates or those who have good teacher/support'
- The Patoss Bulletin
This is an excellent book for both students with dyslexia and academic staff who are supporting students with Dyslexia. It has a range of resources on a DVD and a number of suggestions on ways to support students. A very important book to promote inclusion in higher education. The book has been recommended for students at all levels of study.
I feel this is supplemental for tutors and students basic understanding and techniques in dyslexia
A very useful text for students with mild to moderate learning challenges and also for practitioners.
This is recommended for staff dealing with Dyslexia among students as well as for those particular students. The visual nature of many of the pages helps consolidate the points made. Perhaps we should be allowing students to make more points with diagrams. The book covers more than we need as we are a theological college, not a maths and general one for which there are chapters but the reading strategies, the help with grammar are helpful for those without any obvious dyslexia too.
Although designed to support students with Dyslexia, this text is suitable for all undergraduate students embarking on their programme of study. It provides invaluable advice and strategies to help students with Dyslexia. The language, structure and design are accessible and the additional resources supplied on the CD-ROM are particularly useful for integration with other assistive software. This is also an informative text for staff who are supporting students with Dyslexia
Clearly written text. Useful ideas for example for spelling, punctuation and grammar and how to manage your workload.
This text incorporates time management and personal development as priority study skills which is more than helpful. As the chapters focus on common issues for students with Dyslexia, it is pleasing to note the legibility of them.
The information in this text will be particularly useful for our students with dyslexia. The section about maths and numeracy is being highlighted on all students' reading lists as it will be helpful for students with other issues - e.g. maths anxiety
This is an immensly practical book, which will be of key help to students in FE/ HE with dyslexia, as well as their tutors
