Supporting Adults with Dyslexia
Dyslexia is a difference in the part of the brain which processes language.
As well as problems with reading, spelling and writing, dyslexic people may also experience organisational and short-term memory difficulties.
Dyslexia tends to run in families with the latest scientific research showing that dyslexia is a genetic, neurological condition.
Some adults with dyslexia feel overwhelmed by their difficulties whilst others have developed strategies to cope with their daily and routine activities.
Whether you have known about your dyslexia for years, have suspicions that you may be dyslexic or coming to terms with a recent diagnosis then Dyslexia Cornwall can help through our:
