Signs of Dyslexia in Adults

Practically all of the what we know of dyslexia has been written during the last 25 years or so. Before that the condition was practically a mystery.

Dyslexics see things differently. A dyslexic’s eyes are just the same as those of non-dyslexics, but their brains interpret the signals received in different manners. Because of this they learn differently. They must be taught in the way they learn, not in the traditional ways.

For roughly the last 15 years, as part of a program to help in overcoming dyslexia, school-age kids have all been screened for signs of dyslexia in children. Those identified as “probables” went through a full-blown test for dyslexia. Those dyslexics thus identified were subsequently taught according to the way they needed to be taught.

Those who went through grade school more than 15 years ago almost all bear the scars of being hammered into molds that did not fit. They were ridiculed for their differences, looked at as retarded (which most are definitely not!), slow learners, etc. They were embarrassed and learn to hide their differences.

Millions of adult dyslexics today have never taken a dyslexia test. They still struggle with learning and reading difficulties that could be easily overcome if they were only known. A half-hour dyslexia test could make enormous improvements in their self-esteem and abilities.

There are a large number of different types of dyslexia to deal with. There is no standard definition, no real, workable way to sort them out into types and put them into nice, neat categories. Each one is different and needs to be evaluated and taught accordingly.

Testing for dyslexia, especially in adults, is extremely important. Testing is the only way the numerous (in the millions) of adult dyslexics can be identified and helped. Without knowing, without the training they need, it’s probable that they can never reach their full potentials. A simple dyslexia test could set them free, dramatically improve their lives.
