While much has been written about dyslexia and literacy, little has been written about dyslexia and counselling. Good counselling remediates problems in relationships. Good teaching remediates problems in literacy. When the principles of effective counselling combine with the principles of effective literacy teaching, then dyslexia becomes not only manageable but potent, a source of individual strength and wisdom.
This book is designed to be a practical resource for busy counsellors and therapists working with dyslexic clients in the time-constrained world of modern therapy. It is also a reference for anyone who is interested in the counselling perspective on dyslexia: parents, teachers and anyone working in, for example primary care or the social services.
