Diary of a Dyslexic School Kid

Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Experience day-to-day life for a dyslexic kid, including school life, bullying and coping with tests and homework, in this frank and funny diary.

Co-authored with a teenage boy with dyslexia and illustrated with cartoons, this is a positive yet honest look at the difficulties of being dyslexic. Using a simple and relatable approach, the authors display the ups and downs of school – and home – life with a reading difficulty, focussing on the sometimes overwhelming experience of being at a bigger school and studying loads of new subjects.

Providing tips for what really helps and works based on real-life experience, this fun, accessible book shows teens and tweens with dyslexia that they are far from alone in their experiences.
