Many people with dyspraxia and dyslexia also have ADHD. This fully revised edition of David Grant’s thought-provoking, insightful book develops our understanding of specific learning differences and considers the further challenges presented by these overlapping conditions.

New sections explore mental imagery [visualisation] and synaesthesia, enabling the reader to gain a fuller understanding of the sensory experiences and thoughts of individuals with specific learning differences.

As well as providing information defining Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and ADHD, That’s the Way I Think addresses topics including:

  • colours and reading
  • becoming creative
  • sports, genes and evolution
  • ‘invisible’ girls and women.

The accessible style of this book, which includes numerous anecdotes and personal insights, will immediately strike a chord with anyone who has first- or second-hand experience of these specific learning differences.

Essential and enlightening reading for people with specific learning differences as well as their parents and/or partner, this book also provides an invaluable insight for teachers, teaching assistants and SENCos.

Review:

'A refreshing, informal, well documented explanation of some of the most prevalent - and frequently overlapping - Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLD) viz.: dyslexia, dyspraxia and ADHD ... Grant’s unique approach explains to the reader dyslexia-dyspraxia-ADHD with great professionalism, insight and an atmosphere of informality, rather than purely scientifically. Whether the reader is an SpLD/ND individual, his/her relative, a friend, educator or a professional in this field, this book is easily accessible to all. One will be able to simply identify oneself with or recognize the SpLD/ND subject in question or recognise the Specific Learning Differences ... I can warmly recommend this book, for it is informative, easy and enjoyable to read.' - Dyslexia Contact
