This book combines moving accounts of the lived experience of dyslexic adults with tips and strategies for surmounting the challenges you or a loved one or family member may face.

Drawing on in-depth interviews, Kelli Sandman-Hurley explores common themes such as school experiences; the impact of dyslexia on mental wellbeing; literacy skills; and being a dyslexic parent, perhaps to a child who is also dyslexic. Interviewees share what helped them (or didn't), the strategies they use daily to tackle literacy-based tasks, anxiety and low self-esteem, the advice they would give to the parent of a dyslexic child who is struggling, and reflect on how their experience has impacted their own parenting style.

Whether you're dyslexic yourself or supporting someone who is, this book sheds light on an underrepresented topic, providing much-needed guidance and insight around what life is really like for an adult with dyslexia.

Kelli Sandman-Hurley, Ed.D. is an author and co-founder of the Dyslexia Training Institute. She is the author of the well-received book, Dyslexia Advocate! How to Advocate for a Child with Dyslexia within the Public Education System and Dyslexia and Spelling.
Through intimate and, at times, heartbreaking interviews, Kelli Sandman-Hurley uncovers the frustrations, rage and shame that we dyslexics can experience. Yet through Sandman-Hurley's remarkable insight and understanding of the dynamics of dyslexia she offers a hope-filled path through the maze of institutional terminology and powerful emotions. Anyone who has a connection with a dyslexic needs to read this book. If you read one book about the challenges and hope of dyslexia, The Adult Side of Dyslexia is the one! -- Sprague Theobald, Author of "The Other Side of the Ice" Normal and typical are not synonyms. More and more, we're becoming aware of this truth, and The Adult Side of Dyslexia continues the conversation. Exploring thematic and personal journeys, this book is full of thoughtful empowerment, presented in ways that every reader will find engaging, usable, and accessible. -- Jennifer Cook, Author of "The Asperkid's (Secret) Book of Social Rules"
