Dyslexia is a complex condition, and every dyslexic needs a different solution. Technology is not that solution, but a part of the process to minimise the impact of dyslexia on individuals and to assist with the difficulties they face in everyday situations, so that they can demonstrate their potential in school or at work. This book takes the reader back to basics, from understanding the needs of the dyslexic individual to getting the most from available technology. It does this by providing frameworks from theoretical perspectives and following this through to practical implementation, including reviews of the most common types of software. There is plenty of practical advice on how to support dyslexic individuals using technology, including how to get the most out of what is available. It highlights state of the art technology, and suggests what more still needs to be done to make this technology truly enabling for all dyslexics.

This volume draws together current research on dyslexia and literacy in multilingual settings across disciplines and methodologies. The contributors, all internationally recognised in the field, address developmental and acquired literacy difficulties and dyslexia in a range of language contexts including EAL/EFL. The book uses theories and analytical frameworks of a critical nature to reveal prejudicial social practices, and suggests future research directions towards a critical re-consideration of current understandings of dyslexia in multilingual settings, with a view to foregrounding the potential for interdisciplinarity. The book also suggests ways forward for evidence-informed practice, and it will be a valuable resource for researchers, practitioners and students alike.

"Dyslexia's Competitive Edge is a book for every dyslexic entrepreneur, business owner, and professional. Tiffany's book is full of strategies and insight, but most important she showcases the value of dyslexia and how it is a competitive advantage." Skip Howard, Managing Director of Dallas Partners, Entrepreneur, and Inventor DYSLEXIA'S COMPETITIVE EDGE discusses how dyslexics can use their strengths to launch businesses, grow their companies, or accelerate their careers. The book includes personal stories, insights, and strategies from fellow dyslexics and non-dyslexics on how to use the dyslexic brain as a competitive edge. Tiffany offers advice on how to successfully manage difficulties that dyslexia can present such as having a response plan for when a dyslexic's word retrieval system misfires. As a dyslexic business owner, Tiffany writes from experience. She wrote a book she wished was available earlier in her career on how to use the dyslexic brain as an asset. Tiffany provides readers with an extensive resource section at the back of the book. As technology rapidly advances many of the talents dyslexics possess, such as creative, visionary, and outside-the-box thinking, will increase in demand exponentially.

"Human beings were never born to read," writes Tufts University cognitive neuroscientist and child development expert Maryanne Wolf. Reading is a human invention that reflects how the brain rearranges itself to learn something new. In this ambitious, provocative book, Wolf chronicles the remarkable journey of the reading brain not only over the past five thousand years, since writing began, but also over the course of a single child's life, showing in the process why children with dyslexia have reading difficulties and singular gifts. Lively, erudite, and rich with examples, Proust and the Squid asserts that the brain that examined the tiny clay tablets of the Sumerians was a very different brain from the one that is immersed in today's technology-driven literacy. The potential transformations in this changed reading brain, Wolf argues, have profound implications for every child and for the intellectual development of our species.
