Even though many adults with Dyslexia have done really well in life and often say it is a "gift"  which helped them become "stronger" and "more resilient", most would say that school was hard. And most of them will say that they suffered badly from teasing and poor self-esteem and self-confidence.

Studies show that the brains of those with dyslexia generally do not use all the parts required for reading quickly even after phonological training. The "learning difference" in school was actually a "learning difficulty".

 

Most adults with Dyslexia say it was and still is a problem for them, but dyslexia is only "lifelong" if the wrong tools are used to deal with it.

Let's face it.  All learning is "brain re-wiring", including programs that deal directly with reading and rely only on reading practice, which cannot take into account all the underlying difficulties.

 

For fast change, you want to deal with the underlying causes of difficulties by providing your brain directly with what it needs to read and learn.
