From the Back Cover:

Neurodiversity in Higher Education: Positive Responses to Specific Learning Differences brings together the expertise of a powerful group of authoritative writers, offering an explanation of how psychologists identify a range of specific learning differences in students. It provides detailed information about the most common types of neurodiversity, and explores them in relation to relevant legislation, institutional policy and the overall learning and teaching implications. It also investigates the most effective computer hardware and programs used by students to help them access the curriculum. This book strikes a coherent balance between theoretical and practical aspects of neurodiversity, identifying the key issues and forecasting future trends. The case studies featured throughout are designed to have a broad international appeal.

About the Author:

Dr David Pollak is Principal Lecturer in Learning Support at De Montfort University. He runs the highly successful website brainhe.com. He has specialised in neurodiversity such as dyslexia for over 30 years, and is a UK National Teaching Fellow.
