A Little Edge of Darkness: A Boy's Triumph Over Dyslexia

Product Description
Customer Reviews
Alexander Faludy is severely dyslexic. He is also the youngest person to pass English Literature GCSE - at the age of nine - and A Level, at the age of eleven. Now twelve years old, he is also the youngest ever to be accepted on an Arts degree course.<BR>A Little Edge of Darkness tells Alexander's remarkable story from a double perspective: that of his parents as they gradually became aware of his combination of dyslexic disability and his exceptional intellectual ability; and that of Alexander himself, who recounts the isolation and confusion of a child who is progressively and puzzlingly rejected. His diagnosis as dyslexic at the age of seven came as a relief to the family, providing as it did a coherent explanation of Alexander's difference and his intelligence, and this book describes how, from being a child unable to function to his potential in the educational system, Alexander has become an example of a new approach to dyslexia. By concentrating on his abilities rather than using the conventional method of remedial treatment for his weaknesses, Alexander and his parents broke the mould, providing a dyslexic child with a unique opportunity to fulfil his potential.<BR>The book will be of interest not only to parents of exceptional children, but also to teachers, educational psychologists, and other professionals working in the field of special needs.
