Author note

JANET GODWIN currently works at Oxford Brookes University, UK, for the Upgrade Study Advice Service and the Dyslexia SpLD service where she teaches study skills to students. Janet is also the author of Planning Your Essay. After a career in industry, Janet took up teaching and recognised that some students' performance was variable. This sparked an interest in dyslexia/SpLD. Janet has supported students to develop their study skills in FE/HE, where her dyslexic students taught HER how best to support THEM.


As a dyslexic student you have a unique learning style. Understanding this can help you take control and study in a way that is most effective for you. Full of practical advice and visual examples, this friendly book will guide you through the dyslexic learning style. It gives you all the essential knowledge and ideas needed to manage your dyslexia positively.

Handy for students at any level, this easy-to-read guide:

- suggests core strategies for doing things differently to work with your dyslexia, instead of against it
- covers individual study skills, including organisation, reading, writing and taking exams
- provides information on the support that should be available to you as a student
