"Marci Peterson presents invaluable information to the adult
dyslexic in a clear and supportive tone. The format and layout of
the book decrease the visual input and difficulty for the reader.
This book will not be read only once, but rather kept close as a
guide of support for his/her daily struggles. I applaud Marci for
writing a much-needed addition to the literature on dyslexia."
--Jone Bycel, MS, BCET, FAET, Board Certified Educational
Therapist, Advisory Board Member to Dallas Branch International
"There are many books written about dyslexia but very few that focus on adults with dyslexia. This excellent book is a must for adults and teens who have a diagnosis of dyslexia or suspect they might have dyslexia, as well as those who live, love, or work with them. The author demystifies dyslexia with clarity and compassion, identifies the challenges and gifts of dyslexia, and provides useable tools to improve skills and achieve success. It is a valuable resource for professionals who work with individuals with dyslexia, and I know I will make good use of the information in my educational therapy practice for a long, long time." --Kaye Ragland Ed.D, LMFT, BCET, president, The Association of Educational Therapists
"This is exactly the book that adults with dyslexia have long needed! It covers all the key issues that adults with dyslexia face, and is filled with helpful and practical advice. Yet it is so well-organized and clearly written that even those who struggle with reading will find it useful. A must-have book for all adults with dyslexia." --Brock L. Eide, MD, co-author of The Dyslexic Advantage, The Mislabeled Child
"This visually appealing, uncluttered, and easy-to-read book validates the experience of what it is like to grow up with a reading disability. The book provides a thorough explanation of dyslexia, the associated day-to-day challenges, and drives home the much-needed message that having dyslexia does not mean that you have low intelligence. Marci Peterson provides concrete, usable suggestions for adults to improve literacy skills, manage stress, and capitalize on personal strengths. A wonderful resource that clarifies our current understanding of dyslexia along with meaningful recommendations." --Mary Gwaltney, PhD, educational psychologist
