Organisation and Everyday Life with Dyslexia and other SpLDs

«

"This book is packed with colour, shapes, mind maps, boxes and different ‘routes’ through the material. Like everything in it, these provide excellent approaches for everyone whether individuals with an SpLD or not. It is possible to pick and choose what works for any one person, and key concepts run throughout the material strengthening the supportive approach. Similarly, these ingredients in the book are hugely helpful: lots of real examples, tips, models, resources and stories, as well as lots of headings, questions, alternatives, key concepts, solutions, insights, benefits, options and further references. A real gem, full of strategies." - Sally Daunt, SpLD Tutor, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, UK.

"This was an engaging read. I found the real-life examples in support of the observations and solutions particularly interesting as they bought the wider theory to life. This book offers numerous highly practical life strategies for dyslexics, but I also think that it has a broader application as many of the challenges described will be familiar to readers whether they perceive themselves to be dyslexic or not. Overall, I went away very impressed by the attention to detail, accessible style and reassuring tone." - Dr James Fowler, The York Management School, The University of York, UK.

"In this outstanding and unique new book, Ginny Stacey and Sarah Fowler provide a wealth of tips and techniques, acquired over many years of living with dyslexia and working with people who have it, that can help dyslexics function more efficiently in their daily lives. Written by dyslexics for dyslexics, the book is organised and presented in a way that cleverly considers the different ways dyslexics process and assimilate information, acknowledging that there is not a ‘one-fits-all’ approach to dealing with dyslexia. Central to their approach to coping with dyslexia is the notion of ‘metacognition’, of reflecting on your own style of thinking to understand how dyslexia uniquely affects you, and what coping strategies and techniques work for you. Accordingly, by the time you have finished the book, you will not only have become more organised, productive and content with living with dyslexia; you will also be an expert on your unique style of thinking. Whether you are a student or a professional, I cannot recommend this book enough." - James Tierney, LLB, BCL, LPC, Solicitor and a former student of Stacey.

"This comprehensive, structured collection of pragmatic advice offers a choice of strategies to help organise everyday life. The presentation, in both content and style is designed to address the heterogeneous needs of its target readers, from coloured fonts, the use of coloured frames and icons to identify themes, to using both mind maps and lists to acknowledge different cognitive styles. The advice is sound, built on years of experience and enhanced by real life examples. It is a formidable guide for being organised for the many and varied challenges of everyday life." —Steve Chinn, PhD. Visiting Professor, University of Derby, UK
