Dyslexia Matters - Discover the gifts within you

Adult Dyslexia

depressed college studentDyslexia adversely affects many children and teenagers during their school years and, if it is not addressed, it will continue to affect them throughout adulthood too.

The stress associated with tests and exams may lead dyslexics to avoid further education and also some types of jobs. They are usually very bright individuals and their frustration may be worsened by ending up in a boring and intellectually unchallenging type of job.

Many dyslexic adults hold resentment and disappointment for not having achieved their potential in the workplace and in their personal lives. They may find that they get frustrated at themselves, or blame others for their unhappiness. They may experience bouts of anger and/or depression.

Nevertheless, there are many dyslexics who have overcome their difficulties and lead successful and happy lives. Dyslexia Matters can effectively help adults with dyslexia, and related learning difficulties, to overcome their frustrations, increase their self-esteem and confidence, and make a positive change in their lives.
We all deserve a chance to reach our fullest potential.
