'Dyslexia in the Digital Age is a very useful book for dyslexics and others with specific learning disabilities, and for those who work with them. It provides many practical suggestions about hardware, software and presentation of information, and explains concepts in clear, non-technical language. No dyslexic or service provider to dyslexics should be without it.'
Professor Linda Siegel, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
'Dyslexia in the Digital Age should prove an invaluable tool for anyone working with children and adults with dyslexia. It provides a wealth of information on what is available to facilitate expert performance. I particularly liked the author's recommendations!'
