At the end of last year Nel, in collaboration with Irene Besnard-van Baaren and Kees van den Bos, translated and edited the book Positive Dyslexia by Prof. Roderick Nicolson. It was published under the title: ‘Dyslexie360 – Een totaalplaatje’ (Dyslexia360 – A total picture), containing scientific evidence that dyslexia is a talent diversity with weaknesses as well as strengths. ‘Dyslexie360 – De Praktijk’ is scheduled to be published in 2021. In this publication, Nel and her team look at the meaning of talent diversity at the various stages of life, from infancy to the time one starts to learn, study, work, enter into relationships and perhaps have children.
Exclusively for Dyslexia Week, Nel will update you on the contents of this book, including for each chapter: a typical feature of the stage of life in question, what you encounter when you are dyslexic, the dos and don’ts and good practice.
