Two psychologists specializing in dyslexia present a guide for professionals (including psychologists, managers, and occupational health and disability advisers), and for readers who are dyslexic themselves. They offer an overview of dyslexia and associated syndromes, and a discussion of employment law and reasonable adjustment. Emotional issues related to dyslexia and problems at work are also addressed. For managers, the book includes information on how to identify dyslexia and how to arrange workplace needs assessments. For dyslexic employees, the book outlines specific strategies for reading, writing, number work, public speaking, and staying organized. All ideas are illustrated with realistic case examples and stories. About 30 pages of appendices offer symptom checklists, relaxation exercises, contacts for UK organizations and websites, and suggestions for further reading. There are also descriptions of different types of assistive technology, such as speech recognition software, smartphones, text-to-speech software, digital voice recorders, and GPS devices. Bartlett, a psychologist, is a trainer and advisor for dyslexic adults in the workplace. Moody, a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist, directs the Dyslexia Assessment Service.
