Abstract:

"In this revolutionary book, the Eides use new brain science and their expertise in neurology and learning disorders to explain how individuals with dyslexia not only perceive the written word differently but also conceive space more intuitively, see connections between unrelated objects, and are able to make great leaps creatively that others simply miss. Presenting a variety of case studies and true stories to support the science, The Dyslexic Advantage demonstrates that each individual with dyslexia is unique and faces specific challenges while, at the same time, possesses remarkable talent and ability. Carefully explaining how four areas dyslexics excel in appear in the activities of children and adults, the Eides provide useful advice on how to maximize an individual's potential in material reasoning (used by architects and engineers), interconnected reasoning (scientists and designers), narrative reasoning (novelists and lawyers), and dynamic reasoning (economists and entrepreneurs)"--Provided by publisher.
