Reviews

'An essential read for young people with dyslexia about to embark on their post-16 education. Armed with this information young people and their families will have the confidence to get the best out of the services available. Everyone who provides information, advice and careers guidance should add this informative and easy to read book to their tool kit.'
- Susan Dwyer, Support Manager, Grade 1 Ofsted Rated College of Further Education

'This book will fill a gap in the market for both students and their parents. It explains clearly what support is available in further education. It provides good, concise information. I especially liked the revision template and the information in the appendices on how to use the technologies that students often have on their phones. I think the book will also be useful to teachers, careers advisors and other professionals. It is well written and easy to read and understand.'
