Adults (19 and over)

Dyslexia has nothing to do with a student’s intelligence. There are many strengths associated with Dyslexia, and they are just as common as some of the difficulties experienced. Adults who may have Dyslexia should be identified and assessed as early as possible. This checklist is free and confidential. It may help you to spot signs of Dyslexia and help decide if the results merit further professional testing.  

Signs that an Adult may have dyslexia include:

1. Has parents or siblings who have/had Dyslexia (Dyslexia often runs in families)
2. Has difficulty focusing on one task and get easily affected by stress.
3. Might be highly competent at their job but is reluctant to take a written test to advance to the next level.
4. Misspeaks, misuses, or mispronounces words without realizing it. Has difficulty filling out lengthy forms.
5. Has the ability to think outside of the box, and able to come up with excellent, unorthodox ideas that are not only fresh, but lucrative as well.
6. Reliant on spouse, children, or family members to help with written correspondence.
