Dyslexia in the Workplace is written both for dyslexic adults and for professionals concerned with helping them, for example psychologists, tutors, therapists, researchers, disability advisors and welfare officers. It also offers advice to employers on how to help dyslexic staff. The book covers the nature of dyslexic difficulties and their effects, both practical and emotional. Dyspraxic difficulties are also discussed. Assessment tests are described and reviewed and recent research is summarised. Detailed advice is given on tackling the difficulties; topics covered include work organisation and effective work methods, reading and writing for work purposes, memory skills, oral presentation and interaction, and dealing with the emotions associated with dyslexia. Finally, guidance is given on the Disability Discrimination Act and sources of information and help are listed.
