This book presents a unique visual approach to academic writing and composition specifically tailored to the needs of dyslexic students in higher education. Readers will learn to successfully structure and articulate their ideas, get to grips with critical reading, thinking and writing, and fulfil their full academic potential.

The ‘writing process’ is demystified and techniques for writing compelling, insightful and mark generating essays are conveyed via innovative and meaningful representations, templates, images, icons and prompts, specifically designed to meet the visual and ‘big picture’ strengths of dyslexic learners. A companion website offers supplementary exercises, examples, videos and a full range of downloadable templates and bookmarks.

Written by a dyslexic for dyslexics, Academic Writing and Dyslexia is underpinned by extensive research. As a dyslexic student you will learn to present your thoughts with confidence, critically evaluate competing arguments and gain top marks. The book will help you bridge the gap between your existing coping strategies and the increased demands and rigours of academic writing at university. It will be an invaluable resource for dyslexic students, academics, dyslexia specialists, learning developers and writing tutors throughout the higher education sector.
