However, dyslexia can continue to make reading and writing difficult in adults who did not receive help in childhood.
The International Dyslexia Association lists these common symptoms of dyslexia in adults:
- Avoiding or hiding problems with reading and writing.
- Poor spelling.
- Problems with time management and organizational skills.
- Often relying on memory and speaking skills rather than reading and writing.
- Holding a job well below one's intellectual ability.
