What Should I Look Out For?

For all ages

If the answer to many of the following is ‘yes’ you may wish to seek advice:

  • Do you feel that you are able, but struggle with reading, writing and spelling?
  • Do you feel that you are not achieving as much as you are capable of?
  • Do you take ages to read a book – and understand it?
  • Confuse or forget telephone numbers?
  • Have difficulties in carrying out three instructions in sequence?
  • Put letters or figures the wrong way round 15 for 51, 6 for 9 b for d?
  • Have difficulty in planning and writing essays, letters and reports?
  • Have difficulty with mental arithmetic?
  • Have problems with directions and with your left and right?


Recognition and assessment is essential.
