Adult Dyslexia

Despite their best efforts, dyslexic adults can fail to realise their potential. They may conceal their difficulties from work colleagues (and even family) to get through tasks and their gifts and talents are often wasted. The frustration of gaining qualifications or passing exams, can lead to stress and anxiety. Lack of confidence in their abilities and low self-esteem can stand in the way  of advancement or promotions in the workplace.
