About The Author

Alexandar Campion

Alexandar Campion came into writing late in life because of his learning difficulties, while having been a successful chef and then decided to quit it all to become an architect he realised he needed to learn to read and write. This didn’t come easily or fast but each day he just kept on finding a new way to absorb as much information as possible, and never gave up. He has how written one book... Learning Challenges with Dyslexia and Dyspraxia and now his latest work, Living and Coping with a Disability. Both books have come from his own unique perspective and experience which he wishes he had on both journeys, he adds his dash of humour and keeps the book from talking at you to talking with you as this he feels makes the reading more enjoyable.

I have both dyslexia and dyspraxia. I have decided to write this, probably a little too late as there is some great information out there but maybe I have a little bit of a different look on things.

Personal accounts of any experience or condition are always compelling and worthy of attention. This is a well written personal account of one young man’s experiences of dyslexia and dyspraxia. In this book the author describes coping strategies that he has devised which others may find useful and inspiring.

As a counsellor I found this a useful and insightful read and  I would recommend this book to anyone who has any form of interest or experience with these conditions.

“As a parent of a dyslexic son, now aged 40, I would certainly have found this book useful some 30 years ago when battling for my son and I’m sure that he too would have found it a great benefit.”

“As a parent of a young boy with, amongst other diagnoses, dyspraxia, this book explained some behaviours to me that I didn’t understand in my son. He went through a phase of watching programmes with the subtitles on, only being able to tell me that he ‘liked it’. It wasn’t until reading this book, that it made absolute sense to me! This book has given me many more ideas to try with my son to try and help make the world less complicated!!”

“This book provides a very insightful and personal account of one individual’s journey of working with dyslexia and dyspraxia; dealing with and how to manage barriers & challenges to learning.

A wealth of Hints, tips & advice, accompanied by imagery,
offering guidance to achieve desired goals.

A great source of reference, useful to individuals with learning conditions and those supporting individuals with Dyslexia and Dyspraxia; educational providers, parents/guardians/spouses, alike.”
