This study examined the effects of dyslexia on well-being as an adult. The researcher compared adults given a diagnosis of dyslexia with adults not given a diagnosis of dyslexia for well-being using a quantitative causal-comparative method. Participants for this study were a convenience sample, consisting of 219 adults with and without a self-identified diagnosis of dyslexia per the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 4th edition (DSM-IV). The researcher used the Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale (WEMWBS) and measured the well-being of adults who are diagnosed as dyslexic and adults that are not dyslexic. The researcher utilized a 14-item questionnaire for positive attributes of mental health, using a five-point Likert-scale with combined possible scores ranging from 14 to 60 with the well-being population mean score as 50.7. Data analysis consisted of an independent samples t test. There was a significant difference in the average scores between adults with dyslexia and adults without dyslexia. The findings suggest that adults without dyslexia have a greater sense of well-being than adults with dyslexia.

Illustrations of how dyslexia impacts classroom learning, social behavior, emotional maturity, job performance, and personal development are also provided. Chapter 1 summarizes remarkable new information about how genetic codes determine brain development and how differences in brain structure cause dyslexia. Chapter 2 explains the perceptual and emotional nature of dyslexia. Chapter 3 describes the problems of poor central vision for reading and attention deficit disorders that often exist beneath the surface of dyslexia. Chapters 4 through 6 describe the four most common subtypes of this learning difference: visual dyslexia, auditory dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia.

The Successful Dyslexic

This innovative book looks at the keys for success in dyslexic adults, comparing both those who are successful and less successful, enabling parents and teachers to use these keys to best support young dyslexics. These keys look at home life, school, career choices, working relationships, coping strategies, traits, unique selling points, and what is considered success for somebody with dyslexia. The Successful Dyslexic questions if school-based trauma can be used positively, as both successful and unsuccessful dyslexic adults share the same traumatic school experiences. It is how these adult dyslexics have used this trauma, positively or negatively that has set them on the path for success, or to struggle as adults searching for a worthwhile career. The theories of ‘disability paradox’ and ‘post-traumatic growth’ are used to understand why despite having a disability, many dyslexics can be, and are, highly successful. This book details an interview study of 27 successful and 10 less successful dyslexics, with 2 expert interviews, and supported by two large online studies. In total this book includes the contribution of 191 adult dyslexics. Each in-depth interview has sought to understand the individual’s journey from childhood to adulthood, and their quotes are used to enlighten the reader to each of their individual experiences. Armed with these insights, it is hoped that parents and teachers of young dyslexics can set them on the path to unlock their own future success.
