Book of the Year - 'A practical and easy-to-read guide for dyslexia students. Clearly and simply written, in a dyslexia-friendly format, it addresses not just study skills, but also more general aspects of coping with student life.' - World of Dyslexia

'Just when young dyslexic and dyspraxic learners are starting the slippery ascent at college, and beginning to realize that college presents a challenge for them in so many ways, Sylvia Moody`s book comes to the rescue to take the learner by the hand.' - Dyslexia International, Tools and Technologies

'As the title suggests, Dyslexia: Surviving and Succeeding at College goes beyond study skills to discuss many aspects of student life. It is a welcome addition to Dr Moody's series of practical self-help guides.' - Dyslexia Consultancy Malvern

'This book is the 3rd volume in Dr. Sylvia Moody's `Dyslexia' series and in my opinion the jewel in her trilogy crown. It is written with great clarity, simplicity, precision and full understanding of the problems dyslexic/ dyspraxic college students may face... It is no wonder that, within a month of its publication, this brilliant and useful book has been named Dyslexia Book of the Year.' - Eleanor May, DANDA News

'This book is written by a professional in the field of dyslexia, for students with dyslexia and dyspraxia who are in or are thinking of entering the futher education sector. It is couched in language that aviods the jargon that bedevils much of the writing in this area.' - SKILL
