Some of the them are, employing in job/position that will hide difficulties or not require dealing with problematic areas, hiding difficulties from co-workers, friends and even family, becoming frustrated at “planning meetings” and sequential tasks – already has the answer and how to do it, feeling overwhelmed with long forms or sequential processes etc.

    Some dyslexic adults feel unable to cope with their difficulties, whilst others have found ways to get round their problems, but changing demands at work or a new venture in life can present tough challenges. Some adults have known about their dyslexia for years, whilst others wonder whether they might be dyslexic, or are coming to terms with a recent diagnosis. It is estimated that dyslexia affects as many as 1 in 10 of the population to some degree. One person in 25 is severely dyslexic. People with dyslexia think and learn differently from others. They sometimes feel as if their mind is ‘differently wired’.
