Summary
"Most of us experience stress at some point in our lives, but experience suggests that dyslexics are particularly vulnerable to it. This is the first book to present documented evidence on the subject." "Lindsay Peer, former Education Director at the British Dyslexia Association, provides telling evidence of the stresses encountered by dyslexic children and their parents, while Melanie Jameson, who is advisor to the Adult Dyslexia Organisation, discusses the ways in which stresses among dyslexics can sometimes lead to miscarriages of justice in courts of law. Five further contributors, themselves dyslexic, describe the many ways in which dyslexia has affected their own and other people's lives."--BOOK JACKET
