Helping Adults with
Dyslexia overcome the
Emotional side
of Dyslexia

Dyslexia is not just about literacy and language.

it can also impact your self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to manage your emotions.
We call this the "hidden side" of Dyslexia. 


Most people understand dyslexia to be something to do with difficulties in reading, writing, spelling and paying attention.  
But there is another side to dyslexia that many people aren’t often aware of – emotions.

Emotional states such as anxiety, frustration, shame, and embarrassment, can have a huge impact on how a person copes with life, especially for those with dyslexia. 

This aspect of dyslexia is often overlooked and misunderstood and can lead to further frustration, embarrassment, and anxiety, followed by overwhelm and despair.

Dyslexia Matters is where you can get help for this emotional side of dyslexia.

I have recently found out that I am dyslexic and completed Amanda's dyslexia program, which has honestly changed my life for the better. The program was personalised for my needs and my dyslexia. Amanda was, kind, caring, patient and just overall AMAZING!  She taught me new ways to learn, we uncovered my triggers, unpacked my anxiety and most of all boosted my confidence.
