What Is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is one of the most pervasive learning disabilities that can cause problems with reading, writing, and spelling. While the exact causes of dyslexia remains unknown, studies have shown that people who struggle with reading typically have weak cognitive skills. Cognitive skills are the brain’s fundamental skills that play a crucial role in reasoning, reading, learning, remembering, and paying attention.

 

Research has shown that more often than not, people with dyslexia have weaknesses in one or more cognitive skills, including working memory, executive function, and attention.

What Does Dyslexia Look Like in Adults?

 

When we hear the term dyslexia, we often relate it to difficulties with reading and writing. And while dyslexia mainly affects these skills in an children and adults, it can have a wider impact on learning. The most common signs of dyslexia involve difficulties in processing information and organization. It can also manifest differently for every individual.

 

For adults with dyslexia, it is often a challenge 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 sometimes struggle with reading comprehension
  • 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
  • You overreact to your mistakes or get easily affected by stress
  • You avoid meetings or discussions that involve extensive planning
  • You prefer to learn visually or with your hands than read instructions

How Does Dyslexia Affect Your Self-Esteem?

For children and adults, the feeling of being left behind by their peers can take a toll on their confidence and self-esteem. And while dyslexia is neither a medical problem nor related to intelligence, dealing with an undiagnosed learning difference can lead to self-doubt. If unaddressed, this can have a lasting effect and continue well into adulthood.

 

Dyslexia can make accomplishing certain tasks more difficult. If you are unaware that you have dyslexia, these struggles can make you feel that you’re not good enough or as smart as your peers. These negative thoughts and experiences can lead to limiting self-beliefs that can affect your personal and professional lives.

How Does Dyslexia Affect You at Work?

If you have been struggling with undiagnosed dyslexia all your life, it can be difficult to build up the confidence and skills you need to become successful in your chosen career. For some adults with dyslexia, the mere process of job-hunting and application is already too big of a hurdle to overcome.

 

In the workplace, you may find that you are more prone to getting overwhelmed or stressed out by certain tasks and projects. It may be difficult for you to focus on tasks, plan, or manage your schedule. All these can hold you back from achieving your professional goals.

 

That said, having dyslexia does not mean you cannot have a successful career or fruitful life. With the right support, you can learn skills and strategies that will help make dyslexia manageable.

How Can We Help Adults with Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is one of the most common learning disabilities, but it often goes undetected. Most adults with dyslexia have had it since childhood but have not received any diagnosis or treatment. The condition can also manifest differently in adults than in children or students with dyslexia.

 

If you are experiencing some of the signs and symptoms mentioned above, it is possible that you may be dealing with dyslexia. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to help you cope with the condition.

 

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, people with dyslexia can be highly successful in life. Once you have been properly diagnosed, adult coaching for adults with dyslexia will help you acquire skills and strategies to manage your condition. An individualized and effective coaching strategy can be designed for you.

 

 

What Is Adult Coaching?

Adult coaching is a service that offers a customized approach that teaches you how to manage difficulties—like dyslexia and other learning disabilities that make completing a task harder—and to regain control of life.

 

Adult coaching for adults with dyslexia is one form of intervention to help you cope with this condition. It typically involves helping the client overcome negative mindsets and focus on having a positive attitude, boosting confidence, setting more ambitious goals, and making adjustments and learning strategies to manage the difficulties you are experiencing with dyslexia.

 

For some individuals, including family members of children and adults with dyslexia, the condition is perceived as a hindrance to having a successful life. And while dyslexia can certainly be a challenge, it does not need to be a burden. With adult coaching, you can begin to see dyslexia in a more favorable light and acknowledge the positives it can also bring.

 

An adult coach can also help you overcome the struggles you may be facing in the workplace. He or she can guide you on how to accomplish a series of tasks, share techniques to help you focus and pay attention, and help you organize your schedule and manage your time better.
