“Self Fulfilment with Dyslexia; a blueprint to success” has been published today and is available in all major bookshops and on Amazon. The book is based on the ten characteristics that underpin success for adults with dyslexia.
Margaret Malpas, the author and our Joint Chair, said “I know school can be really hard for many dyslexic children but then you meet so many adults who have amazing life stories, where they have got beyond the ordeals suffered in childhood and achieved so much. I wanted to find out what led to their success so others could copy it. The book has life stories from some incredibly inspirational people. It is also a “how to” so anyone can learn to develop these success qualities from the book. All royalties have been donated to the BDA.
Throughout 2017, the BDA is paying special focus to adults with dyslexia.
Whilst we continue to campaign for positive change, we are also trying to enable dyslexics themselves to thrive by giving them new resources. You can see the report on Margaret’s research on adults by clicking here.
Margaret will also be sharing these ideas on success factors at our conference for adults on the 28 April, and at the Organisational Members’ Day on the 15 June. This month will also see the launch of our new elearning programme for adults at just £12.99 for 10 modules.
