    Dyslexia

    Dyslexia is a general term that covers a range of issues behind difficulties in reading, spelling and interpreting written and symbolic information, where the person's innate intelligence is unaffected. People with Dyslexia can have unique strengths in creativity and visual thinking.

Coaching for Dyslexia

If you have Dyslexia, especially if it is unrecognised, then you may struggle with spelling, reading or writing at times. You may find it hard to remember written or verbal information, or have other issues indirectly related to Dyslexia, such as visual stress or 'rivering' when reading for long periods (common with 'Erlin's syndrome). Having Dyslexia can be very frustrating at times, but there are unique advantages to Dyslexia such as being able to see the 'big picture' or strengths in visual thinking.

Coaching can help you learn to love reading, writing and spelling, particularly when taking advantage of visual memory strengths (for example by using 'visual spelling' strategies), but can also help in areas that may be indirectly related such as confidence or breaking problems down into manageable chunks.

Please note that I cannot 'diagnose' Dyslexia, although if you believe you haveDyslexia -like traits, you may well benefit from coaching targeted in this area.
