Some adults speak about their experiences dealing with the challenges created by their dyslexia. Through the discussion of those challenges, they speak in depth about the different coping techniques they have deployed as they attempt to process language-related information. Each person has a unique story about how they work around dyslexia.
Many of the coping techniques involve thinking about language, words, and auditory information in non-traditional ways. Instead of understanding how the word is formed, they look for visual elements such as shape. Like many other disabilities, dyslexia does not prevent someone from learning entirely; it merely means that they have to process the information in different and non-conventional ways.
