Free Guide: 19 Symptoms of Adult Dyslexia

Dyslexia in adults can manifest in unexpected ways — making it easy to overlook. Here, learn what dyslexia looks like at work and at home.

Dyslexia is not limited to children, though it is largely diagnosed in childhood.

Roughly 20% of the population has dyslexia, a language-based learning difference that affects reading, spelling, and information processing. However, much as is the case in children, dyslexia in adults can manifest in different and unexpected ways — making it easy to miss.

Dyslexia often occurs with other conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD orADD), dysgraphia, and dyscalculia, too. When treatment focuses on one condition, it is possible that a condition like dyslexia could be overlooked. Over time, adults learn to compensate for the learning disorder.

With the right support and interventions, adults with dyslexia can go beyond compensating to thriving. This download will help adults find out if they have symptoms that align with the disorder.

It’s never too late to seek help and — adult assessments are available.
