Inside the Dyslexic Mind (ebook)

USD $12.99 Tax Included

A resource for parents, teachers and dyslexics themselves


Also available in Print Audio Book


In Laughton King’s formulation, a dyslexic person is like a diesel vehicle. They run perfectly if you give them the right fuel, but if you put petrol in the tank (i.e. expect them to learn like every ‘normal’ child in our current education system) they break down. This book is designed to help dyslexic (diesel) thinkers make sense of their lives.
