Description

Dyslexia in Adolescence: Global Perspectives presents international case studies on the psychosocial development and academic progress of adolescents with dyslexia to enhance understanding of adjustment factors, outcomes and support. The continuation of a qualitative longitudinal research project that focused on children between ten and twelve years of age, this volume revisits them between ages fourteen and sixteen. Through semi-structured interviews, personal narratives, and other assessments, these case studies relate the trials and tribulations associated with the development of adolescents with dyslexia from around the world and the challenges that parents face in supporting their children.
