Offering solutions to common problems students with dyslexia face, Alais describes tried-and-tested techniques for succeeding with reading, spelling, memorising information and time management, and even a simple method to ensure you never misplace your learning tools (such as pencils and books) again.

This is a must-read pocket guide for students with dyslexia aged 11 to 18, and will also be a helpful source of ideas for teachers, SENCOs and parents of teens with dyslexia.

Dyslexia is a complex condition that affects not only learning but every part of life. Experience or fear of social stigma can lead people with dyslexia to camouflage the difficulties they face, to withdraw and to adopt negative coping strategies, particularly if they lack adequate support, identification and intervention. This can have lasting impact on their emotional health. Neil Alexander-Passe is an experienced researcher and a special needs teacher in secondary mainstream education. He also has dyslexia. Neil uses his personal and professional experience to shed light on the complexities surrounding dyslexia and examines psychological theories such as ego-defence mechanisms and learned helplessness that reveal how people deal with its emotional impact. He offers guidelines and advice, illustrated with real life examples, about how to help people with dyslexia avoid harmful coping strategies and learn to deal with stress, anxiety and low self-esteem in more effective and psychologically positive ways. This book will help educational and clinical psychologists, teachers, mental health specialists, counsellors and therapists understand the emotional complexities of dyslexia.

Dyslexia, involving problems with reading, writing, spelling, memory, organization, and time management, can affect people of all backgrounds and abilities.

Dyslexia: A Teenager's Guide helps young adults tackle these problems with practical strategies uniquely suited to them. Clearly and simply written by a leading expert in the field, the book helps with reading, writing, spelling, memory, and provides tips on how to take notes and organize study, and how to deal with exams. It also shows how to improve confidence and assertiveness, and how to build on the creative talent that many dyslexics have.

Er lebt in einem völlig heruntergekommenen Haus – sein Garten allerdings ist der schönste der ganzen Stadt. Das liegt an der bösen Fee, die in Mr Gums Badewanne wohnt und ihm mit einer Pfanne eins überzieht, wenn er seinen Garten nicht pflegt. Das alles wäre ja in Ordnung, wenn nicht eines Tages ein Hund auftauchen und den Garten beim Spielen verwüsten würde. Um die Fee ruhigzustellen und den Hund für immer loszuwerden, beschließt Mr Gum, das Tier zu vergiften. Davon bekommt das kleine Mädchen Polly Wind, und für sie ist klar: Sie muss dem bösen Mr Gum die Stirn bieten!
