Drawn from a research study of university students with dyslexia, this book presents transcripts of interviews in which students give accounts of their experiences of growing up with dyslexia. Following introductory chapters reviewing some of the present definitions of dyslexia and outlining the research methodology used for this study, the main body of the book comprises the accounts of individual students and a look at how these relate to some of the wider theoretical and practical issues surrounding dyslexia. The students, who volunteered for the study, varied considerably in age and life development - from those still in their teens who had just left home, to middle aged mature students with children of their own - and came from a wide range of social and economics backgrounds. This made for a rich and diverse picture of students with dyslexia. The concluding chapter summarises the main issues raised in the book and discusses possible solutions.
