On every page, one is assured of Sarah Myhill's first-hand knowledge and experience of the concerns of the dyslexic student through her ability to put herself in the shoes of the reader.
Accepting dyslexia and being able to navigate my struggles has been a great burden during my years as a student. The book has been great in helping me identify these difficulties with practical skills and tools to tackle them. The activities in the book really push me to look into my development needs which I have not been able to do until now. The breakdown of sections was great when jumping back and forth between key themes throughout, especially when I forget, as we Dyslexics do!
An informative, concise and well-structured skills book. Not only is the information relevant but communicated and presented in an accessible and appealing way (...) Now, as a qualified teacher, I read this book with a teacher’s hat. Neurodiversity impacts students and teachers in different yet significant ways and this book provides an insight into the most effective, empowering strategies to combat the feeling of failure and incompetency (often felt by dyslexia).
This is a brilliant book which I have added to the reading list for trainee teachers. There are an ever-increasing number of neuro-diverse students attending college and teachers need to be able to identify neuro-diversity, even if it is not disclosed, and put strategies in place.
This book is really useful for dyslexic students to look at a range of strategies to help them progress further in their learning.

I bought this book partly to understand how I can support my students better and to recommend to students who "dont think they can" just because they have dyslexia, we all know that isnt true. Simple, straightforward and easy to understand. Another excellent book in this series.
