Dyslexia Testing for Adults at Focused Education.
Dyslexia looks different at different ages. Adults dealing with dyslexia may have incurred years of struggling without knowing where their issues are coming from. They could also just have certain issues in one area of their life, and not know why this one aspect causes disruptions. Although Dyslexia can make people feel dumb, or insecure, it has very little to do with IQ.
Dyslexia is merely a learning disability that affects reading skills. Signs of dyslexia may be more prevalent at different ages or in different environments, i.e. work or school. Adults could have experienced some issues in school, but may not see those same issues in a work environment. They may, however; experience new issues in a work environment that did not present themselves in earlier atmospheres. These types of disabilities can be confusing and frustrating if they go undiagnosed.
Adults with dyslexia may experience problems with spelling, difficulty reading new material, reading out loud, and confusion with things like dates and times. There is a variety of signs that could lead to the diagnosis of Dyslexia. Many adults with dyslexia will have strong areas and weak areas in reading development. They don’t necessarily have to be weak in every area of dyslexia symptoms to receive a diagnosis.
Focused Education’s Educational Psychologist Team are trained to assess adults who may be struggling with Dyslexia. An adult may not show issues in all areas of Dyslexia, but may have issues in a few highlighted areas. The tutors are also available to help previously-diagnosed adults who may still be struggling with aspects of the disorder. Both new and old dyslexia patients, no matter what age, can be assessed and assisted through Focused Education.
Dyslexia testing for adults can take on a few forms. Many people can and will do self-diagnosis tests that are offered online. These are not always the most accurate, and can provide false information. Focused Education likes to determine the learning difficulties new clients may have in person during an assessment. Our initial learning difficulties appointment is offered for the patient’s convenience and to ensure that any testing provided by our Educational Psychologist Team is the right assessment.
