Publisher's Summary

Dyslexia has been described as a difficulty in processing information which may be linked to deficiencies in short-term memory and visual coordination. It is an inherent weakness in short-term memory that is either auditory or visual, which can make it extremely difficult for that person to learn and understand the relation between symbols and spoken sounds. This difficulty allows the person to be unable to correctly speak the correct flow of auditory sounds needed to make a word or sentence sound proper.

The range and severity of the problem of adult dyslexia varies widely between dyslexic people. The main areas of difficulty that occur most often are reading, writing, spelling, numeric, personal organization, and time-keeping. However, the degree to which individuals may be affected ranges from mild spelling difficulties to severe organizational problems or complete illiteracy. In all reality there really is no such thing as a typical case of dyslexia. In some cases, people with dyslexia are unaware that they suffer from such a problem whereas others haven't had a confirmed diagnosis until adulthood.

Adult dyslexia is difficult to recognize and identify as it's a problem that many people either don't realize they have or they try to hide it. Simple tasks that a person with dyslexia may try to perform may become increasingly more difficult, such as taking down a message, which can lead to frustration and anxiety.

Practical information on learning tips.

This is a great book for people with dyslexia on how to spell, read, remember information, and read maps. It also explains how to follow road directions.

The first three chapters are common knowledge, but the following chapters are much more helpful. The best information is in chapters thirteen and fourteen. I liked the tips on using mnemonics to spell, reading with coloured or tinted pages, using highlighter pens to highlight words, and counting change out loud.

I also really liked the tip on asking people for directions by using landmarks instead of street names, as people with dyslexia find it easier to remember landmarks than street names.

Worthless

This book seems like the author just copy pasted a bunch of stuff from the internet, it offers no real insight at all. It looks like the author has no expertise or experience with dyslexia, and just made the most curiosity research.

Excellent Tips and Tricks!

An Interesting audible. I’ve heard a lot of these tips through the years, but never associated them with dyslexia. I now have a conscious awareness of them and I’m grateful that the author shed some light regarding the subject. Bravo... this is a concise, got to the point overview which helped me immensely and has instilled a higher confidence in my individual thinking. I have always known intuitively that I think and operate differently than others in my personal and professional life.

Some good tips to think about.

Some ideas to get thinking of how best to handle and live well with Dyslexia.

I felt the narrator's voice was distracting, too raspy which wasn't good for me.

Informative with useful information

Clear vocals it would help that it was read at a slightly lower speed, especially with the tips and tricks

Tips and tricks or just an overview on everything

The title says Adult Dyslexia: Tips and Trips for Beating It. Instead, I think it should be Do you have Dyslexia? Here’s what to do if you think you do. With about 5 tips for the uneducated person, then 5 more for the more educated person. Whalah you’re (not) cured
