On the Chambers Adult Learners' range: An excellent range of reference books from the respected publishers Chambers for adult learners and adults with dyslexia. These books are not just a re-hash of standard works, they have been developed specifically to meet the needs of the target audience. Chambers have clearly acted on advice received from the British Dyslexia Association and, for the large print books, also the RNIB. The books are very accessible and clearly laid out and should prove popular with anyone who finds a typical dictionary or thesaurus rather impenetrable. thedyslexiashop.com On the Chambers Adult Learners' range: An excellent range of reference books from the respected publishers Chambers for adult learners and adults with dyslexia.
