"This eminently readable book guides the reader through a wealth of information about the management of dyslexia from early years through to the secondary phase and adulthood...The book is extremely well organised, enabling the reader quickly to locate information. There is a concise introduction, seven compact chapters and concluding sections covering contacts, suppliers, further reading and a comprehensive bibliography...What I found especially powerful was the way in which the reader is clearly shown, and possibly made to fell, how dyslexia can so fundamentally affect functioning...The clarity and scope of the book make it highly suitable for both support staff and teachers alike." Special Needs, November 2009
