From the Back Cover:

Dyslexia presents many challenges in the workplace. Employees with dyslexia may struggle to cope with their jobs, managers may be unsure how to help them, and specialists involved in offering support, such as occupational health professionals, may lack specific expertise in dyslexia.

This expanded second edition of a bestselling guide to understanding and overcoming the challenges of dyslexia in the workplace gives comprehensive information and advice that will be useful to all of the above groups – as well as to dyslexia professionals, psychologists, and trainers. It offers invaluable insights and practical advice that will overcome obstacles to success, enhance workplace efficiency and ensure that dyslexic employees achieve their full potential.

Written in a clear, straightforward style, Dyslexia in the Workplace covers:

  • the nature of dyslexic difficulties and their effects in the workplace
  • related syndromes such as dyspraxia, attention deficit disorder and visual stress
  • managing the transition from school or college to the workplace
  • strategies that dyslexic employees can use to improve their skills
  • adjustments that employers can make to harness the talent of dyslexic staff
  • a review of relevant legal issues taking account of recent case law

As an introductory guide, this book is written for a diverse audience of professionals in and around the workplace as well as for dyslexic individuals themselves. Experienced professionals seeking to explore workplace dyslexia consultancy in more depth are directed to a companion book, Dyslexia and Employment: A Guide for Assessors, Trainers and Managers (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009).
