Summary "This book addresses the most common questions and concerns of teenagers with dyslexia who are preparing for further education or training. Targeted at 14-17 year olds, this engaging and informative guide empowers young people to make informed decisions about the next stage of their education, and helps them plan for a smooth transition to college, university or the workplace. This book ensures that teenagers with dyslexia are aware of their rights and entitlements and offers a short, accessible overview to the support available, from special exam arrangements to free e-textbooks and assistive technology. Readers are encouraged to ask for support and to develop their own strategies for independent learning, enabling them to better engage with their education and reduce the anxiety of taking this next step. This is a must-read pocket guide for teenagers with dyslexia, and will also be a helpful resource for parents, teachers, SENCOs and career advisors" -- Provided by publisher.
