Dyslexia and Information and Communications Technology Reviews


'Anita Keates's useful guide to information and communications technology issues and resources goes beyond an instantly out-of-date software listing, to discuss educational paths from the point of view of dyslexic children and their families and teachers. This serves both as a reassuring introduction and a realistic guide to what technology will (and will not) achieve.' The Times Educational Supplement
