Editors: Neil Alexander-Passe (London, UK)
Book Description:
‘Dyslexia and Creativity: An Academic Perspective’ is the first in a series to investigate under-researched areas of dyslexia. It has come from a need to investigate a much quoted but little researched and substantiated area of dyslexia, namely positive attributes or talents that have come out of having a learning disability. Whilst traditional understanding of creativity is solely concerned with the arts, wider investigation suggests it includes many other careers, from cooking to sport, business to politics. Thus creativity can be seen in all areas of society. This book is an ideal reference book for researchers, educators, artists and dyslexics who seek understanding of their creative abilities.
