Advice for Adults
Many adults have no idea that they may have dyslexia or be suffering from visual stress. It is not too late as an adult to be tested for visual reading problems and improve symptoms.
Many adults experience the symptoms of visual reading problems such as difficulty with reading dense text, inputting data with accuracy and poor spelling. These problems can make work difficult and slow which can lead to problems with employment and mental health issues.
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 may be suffering from visual stress.
