Since both RDA’s structure and content differ from AACR2 in many respects, this primer will first detail the development and rationale for RDA as well as its intended goals, principles, and objectives.

Dyslexia affects approximately 10% of the population, but many adult learners with dyslexia lack information about the support available to them at colleges and universities, as well as when learning at work. Anecdotal evidence, however, suggests that appropriate and timely support can make a big difference to adult students' success and retention. Knowing what to look for and what questions to ask when visiting a college or attending a university interview can be very challenging. Making a choice about whether to personally disclose dyslexia to a prospective teacher, employer, or trainer can also be fraught with difficulty. Dyslexia and Transition is an accessible resource for dyslexic adults making the transition to college/university/work-based learning. The book is also beneficial for teachers, learning support staff, careers advisors, and families. Drawing on case studies and interviews with learners, it provides clear unbiased guidance and practical tools that will empower dyslexic learners (and their families and other support networks) to make positive decisions about future learning. The text provides information on how dyslexia support works in different sectors of education and what type of support is available to learners at various points in their educational and working lives.
