On the Chambers Adult Learners' range:
An excellent range of reference books from the respected publishers Chambers for adult learners and adults with dyslexia.
These books are not just a re-hash of standard works, they have been developed specifically to meet the needs of the target audience. Chambers have clearly acted on advice received from the British Dyslexia Association
and, for the large print books, also the RNIB
.The books are very accessible and clearly laid out and should prove popular with anyone who finds a typical dictionary or thesaurus rather impenetrable.
From an award-winning team that produced a writer's guide for adult learners comes a new volume designed for any adult who experiences problems with spelling. This offers practical help, utilising simple instructions rather than adopting a 'spelling rules' approach, which is a aimed at building confidence through developing achievable routines and strategies for tackling commonly mis-spelt words. The author has extensive experience of supporting adults and is a dyslexia specialist.
