Editors: Neil Alexander-Passe (Middlesex University, London, UK)
Book Description:
This is the second book of this series, the first being ‘Dyslexia and Creativity’. This format has been found to be advantageous to inform readers that looking at issues from a singular angle can cause distortion, so several points of reference are used to better understand complex problems. Enclosed you will find the work of nine professors and other researchers in the field, some taking highly academic perspectives, whilst others prefer a more down-to-earth style. Chapters are also included from neurologists, educational psychologists and employment specialists, who give alternative ways to understand the topic. No one continent has the whole picture, thus a worldwide span is required to do the subject justice, with the authors reflecting this concept. (Imprint: Nova)
