What Is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that can cause problems with reading, writing, and spelling.

The True Gifts of a Dyslexic Mind

Dyslexia Symptoms
A wide range of behaviors or symptoms are associated with dyslexia and can vary depending on the individual’s age (pre-school, elementary, teens, and adults). In adults and older children or teens, the most common ones include:

 

      • Difficulties in reading (including reading aloud), writing, and spelling
      • Avoiding activities that involve reading
      • Problems in word-retrieval and pronunciation
      • Struggling to “get” jokes or understand expressions
      • Difficulties learning a new language and doing math problems
      • Taking too long to complete a writing or reading-related tasks
      • Trouble memorizing or summarizing stories

What Does Dyslexia Look Like in Adults?

Dyslexia can make it harder to:

 

      • Do math concepts
      • Manage time and meet deadlines
      • Memorize facts and other details like phone numbers
      • Take good notes
      • Write essays and reports

 

And you may find that:

 

      • You avoid reading and writing activities
      • You feel like the right word is on the tip of your tongue, but you can’t get at it
      • You struggle to complete office work that involves repeating the same tasks
      • You get anxious or use lots of fillers, like “uh and um,” when you talk
      • You know a lot about a topic, but you can’t seem to put what you know into words or writing.

How Can We Help Adults with Dyslexia?

If you have these symptoms, you can take steps to make your life easier.

 

Get some tests.

If you feel like you have dyslexia but aren’t sure, we can recommend psychologists who can make this determination for you. Dyslexia is not a medical problem, but you can ask doctors for advice on where and how to get tested.

 

You can also ask:

  • Tutoring companies like Themba Tutors.
  • Education departments
  • Speech therapists
  • A psychologist at local universities or colleges
  • Hospitals or health clinics tied to universities

 

There is no cure for dyslexia. But with proper testing and diagnosis, followed by hard work and support, individuals diagnosed with dyslexia can be highly successful in life. An individualized and effective coaching program can be designed for you.

More about Our Coaching and Tutoring?

 

Our learning specialists, academic tutors, and writing coaches provide 1:1, individualized tutoring for college students, adults, and elementary and high school students of all levels, skills, and personalities.  Our goal is to help college students and adults feel more confident and become more effective learners and workers overall. We aim for clients to maximize their learning potential from a collaborative approach.

 

 

We specialize in tutoring students and adults struggling with learning differences—focusing, organizing, studying, test-taking, reading, writing, math, languages, and other subject areas.  We are experts in ADHD/ADD, executive functioning, language processing, reading (e.g., dyslexia), writing (e.g., dysgraphia), and math disorders (e.g., dyscalculia), autism spectrum disorders, non-verbal learning disorder, and other learning differences.  Our Learning Specialists work with homeschoolers and offer online tutoring options.

 

 

We also tutor high school and college students and adults without learning difficulties but need science, math, writing, and foreign language support. Our Academic Tutors support Algebra I/II, Geometry. Trigonometry, Calculus, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Programming, and many foreign languages. Our Writing Coaches support writing within English Language Arts and across the high school and college curriculum.

 

 

Each of Themba’s expert tutors has an advanced degree in working with learning differences or an academic field of expertise. All tutors have years of teaching and tutoring in private and public schools or universities. We customize curricula, starting with careful assessments, then applying developmentally appropriate methods and strategies. The student’s current academic material is an important focus, but strengthening core skills is crucial because that will last a lifetime. We coach students and adults to learn how to organize, plan, prioritize, focus, avoid distractions, and keep track of materials and tasks.

 

 

Goals include improving memory and information retention, spending more focused time on tasks and completing them, decreasing procrastination, organizing school and office work, managing time more effectively, and thinking carefully before acting.  Specialists model and support the application of skills in the appropriate context. They put the client in the driver’s seat to generalize these skills without holding the steering wheel.
