“I loved this book from the first paragraph. It is comprehensive, sell-researched and grounded in reality. Alison describes the subtleties and complexities of dyspraxia brilliantly and illustrates that it is very much more than a motor difficulty and impacts greatly in every area of life. A welcome addition to any book shelf but a MUST-read for anyone who can affect the progress of a person’s educational career and emotional well-being.” Gill M Dixon, Vice Chair, The Dyspraxia Foundation.
“Organised around easy-to-use lists, The Dyspraxic Learner provides an eclectic mixture of study tips for students and their teachers. The clear explanations of common dyspraxic difficulties should make it an ideal introduction for teaching and support staff new in this area.” Victoria Biggs, Author of Caged in Chaos: A Dyspraxic Guide to Breaking Free.
