Advice for Adults
Many adults have no idea that they may have dyslexia or be suffering from visual problems. It is never too late even for adults to be tested for visual reading problems and to improve their symptoms.
Many adults experience visual reading problems such as difficulty with reading dense text, inputting data with accuracy and poor spelling. These problems can make work very difficult and slow, which can lead to stress, anxiety and deteriorating mental health.
If you feel that words often "swim" when you read them or that you easily lose your place or transcribe numbers back to front, you are suffering from visual reading problems.

Frequently asked questions
Is it too late for me to get help?
What are the signs I might have undiagnosed dyslexia?
Signs include things like making many spelling errors when writing emails or letters. You may also find yourself frequently making mistakes or mistranslating numbers and text when inputting data into spreadsheets or tables.
Does my employer have to make reasonable adjustments?
Yes. If an employee is diagnosed as dyslexic the Equalities Act requires the workplace to provide reasonable adjustments to accommodate their needs, or to offer an alternative role if adjustments cannot be made.
