'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
