From the moment I started to read this book it quickly became a resource I used with the university students I support. I would highly recommend this book, as an extremely useful toolkit packed with practical advice, tips and hints to help the dyslexic learner at university. -- Ann Cole * Dyslexia Review *
The key strengths of this text are in providing a multitude of learning strategies for dyslexia. The text makes sure to inform the reader that dyslexia does not have a universal learning strategy, but that each student requires a learning strategy that is unique to them and their form of dyslexia... The learning strategies addressed in the text range from assisting dyslexic students who suffer from organization issues, text book reading issues, time management, and even note taking in class. -- Tyrone Smith
