Abstract:

"Dubbed the "middle class disease" by some and a "specific learning disability by others, dyslexia affects about one in 25 persons. Dyslexia can involve a frustrating range of problems which conspire against easily working with print, letter and word recognition and writing. Yet professionals refuse to acknowledge the existence of dyslexia as a diagnosable condition, distinct from other causes of low reading ability." "In The Reality of Dyslexia, John Osmond addresses these issues in this informative and sensitive study of living with dyslexia, illuminating the problems using first person accounts and personal histories of child and adult dyslexics, even entire dyslexic families. The reader can easily see the frustrations and difficulties of living experienced by these people, and enjoy their overwhelming feelings of relief when their condition is diagnosed: their peculiar difficulties have a name; they are not alone, stupid, or insane; and in most cases, special accommodations and education can improve their functional abilities."--BOOK JACKET.
