Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This particularly thorough guide by Moody of the London-based Dyslexia Assessment Service is geared toward adults who have difficulties with reading and writing, memory, organization, and time management to a degree that significantly interferes with performance at work. The author provides a description of both dyslexia (difficulty with words) and dyspraxia (difficulty with motor skills), both of which entail struggles in areas like dealing with money in shops, remembering appointments, and interpreting body language. She offers practical advice for common problems at work such as keeping track of the workload and remembering instructions. A downside is that all of the listed helpful organizations are in the United Kingdom. Still, readers will be able to find useful strategies and ideas within the text itself. For all public libraries.
