Welcome to the Dyslexia in Adults podcast, a weekly podcast discussing the reality of dyslexia, but only in adults.

I'm Natalie, the Founder of Dyslexia in Adults, and I am incredibly passionate about talking specifically about adult dyslexia.

It frustrates me so much when people talk about child dyslexia with only a cursory mention of adult dyslexia. When you think about it, there are more adults with dyslexia as nearly seventy percent of the worlds population are over the age of eighteen! There is also a wave of adults being diagnosed with dyslexia later in life, with little or no information about how to navigate the challenges that are specific to adults with dyslexia.

It also doesn’t help those people who want to help adults with dyslexia; line managers, work colleagues, friends, family, if the only information available is that to support children as opposed to what it means to have and support dyslexia in adulthood.

I have rolled up my sleeves, and I am determined to create a space where we only talk about adult dyslexia. It's not part of the conversation, it is the conversation.

Come and join the conversation and help us grow the community. All I ask is that, if you find the content valuable, please rate, review and share this podcast to help others find it.

    What Dyslexia is Actually Like

    What Dyslexia is Actually Like

    Episode 80 - What Dyslexia is Actually Like
    One of the ways in which  Dyslexia in Adults helps people navigate the challenges and specifically in the work place, is though my 1:1 coaching. 
    With coaching its not easy for some people to understand what it is and how it can help. Which is why in this episode I am speaking with one of my past client who has kindly agreed to share their story and experience of 1:1 coaching, and how the coaching has helped to shape her life and career because of dyslexia! 

    Laura find out later in life that she had dyslexia and was ready through school education and well in to work. After her diagnosis, it was clear that some of the challenges with dyslexia were holding her back from career progression.

    When Laura discovered Dyslexia in Adults she joined the Membership 'Hive' and instantly saw the kind of benefits she could gain from more !:! dedicated specific support in her challenges and so set-up a call with Natalie to explore some more.

    Laura's change from starting her coaching session with very little understanding of her dyslexia and very low confidence, to clearer picture of what dyslexia is, and how she can build confidence in learning new strategies of navigating the challenges and thrive with dyslexia. 

    Hear the full story here!

    Dyslexia Survival Guide to Work Meetings

    Episode 79 - Dyslexia Survival Guide to Work Meetings

    Through the our membership 'the Hive' and social media, the most often question I get when referring to workplace challenges with dyslexia is about meetings.

    This is not a surprise!

    Meetings have so many challenges for people with dyslexia; taking notes, processing what is being said, loosing your train of thought, remembering actions the list goes on. 

    Furthermore, people with dyslexia has to navigate all of these challenges at the same time, which as we know makes it worse. 

    Don't fear, for Natalie is here! 

    The next few episodes of the podcast cover all things navigating meetings and slow processing, and in this episode I share with you what are the challenges so that we can understand better what is going on.
