Two neurolearning experts reveal the hidden benefits of having a dyslexic brain.

In this paradigm-shifting book, neurolearning experts Drs. Brock and Fernette Eide describe an exciting new brain science that reveals that dyslexic people have unique brain structure and organization. While the differences are responsible for certain challenges with literacy and reading, the dyslexic brain also gives a predisposition to important skills, and special talents.

While dyslexics typically struggle to decode the written word, they often also excel in such areas of reasoning as mechanical (required for architects and surgeons), interconnected (artists and inventors); narrative (novelists and lawyers), and dynamic (scientists and business pioneers). The Dyslexic Advantage provides the first complete portrait of dyslexia.

I really appreciate this book and its approach to dyslexia. Those with dyslexia have great gifts to share, especially outside of the classroom.

This is one of the best books that I have "read" about dyslexia since I am a very slow reader. It explains that dyslexia is more of an alternative way of learning rather than a learning disability. Sure wish this book was available as an audio CD!
