Adults with Dyslexia

Are you ready to start to take control of your own learning?

When adult dyslexics tap into their natural strengths they are some of the smartest, most imaginative, intuitive and highly motivated people you will know and meet.

If you do have dyslexia (dyscalculia, dyspraxia, ADD or ADHD) you are in good company!

From Famous Movie director Steven Spielberg and food innovator Jamie Oliver to Ingvar Kamprad the man who created IKEA. They all harness the same thing…they all naturally think in pictures rather than words to create new creative ideas and inventions. Dyslexic adults are “real world” thinkers using mainly pictures and concepts instead of mental sentences.

Although this thinking style is an amazing creative Gift when you’re an adult, confidence can be affected when you have a different style of thinking compared to the majority of people around you.
