Adult Programmes

Do you find that you get tongue tied when made to present ideas? Do the right words just escape you when writing or speaking? Do you become easily stressed or overwhelmed when managing tasks, or frustrated because no matter how hard you try, you cannot seem to organise your desk, your home or your life!

Statistics say that 15-20% of adults in the UK are functionally illiterate - that is approx. 1 out of 5 adults in the UK who cannot read or write to a level that gets them through simple daily tasks. The primary cause can be traced to dyslexia or another Specific Learning Difference.

Where now dyslexia is better recognised in children and therefore better supported at school level, what of the generation who suffered through daily battles at school, feeling incapable and generally demotivated in academia?

Adult dyslexics are probably some of the most hard working, dedicated, intuitive, creative and verbally strong in their work environments. What is lacking is a feeling of competence and confidence that has continued since school.
