learning difficulties: dyslexia & adults


comprehensive information for dyslexia

Lettere01gorgoMany adults who have dyslexia have never been diagnosed as being dyslexic. Dyslexics often have significant problems in a work environment, filling in forms etc., because they try to hide the problem.

Many dyslexic adults suffer from low self-esteem, lack of confidence and fall short of their employment ability; they are often relieved to know their lack of progress is due to dyslexia and once diagnosed, they can receive the right kind of help.
Recent research showed a high proportion of self-made millionaires are dyslexic, probably because they had the tenacity and self-belief to succeed.

Many dyslexics excel in areas such as:

* Architecture
* Arts
* Computer sciences
* Construction * Electronics
* Engineering
* Entertainment
* Mathematics
* Physics
* Sports.
