what my results say

okay... It say although I do have trouble with reading and writing and spelling for the test I took it doesn't meet the scoring standards. ( I still need to use a spell checker) At the same time it was noted my reading level still is pretty low for my age. But my math issues do meet the standards they are low enough to show that I have more of a math problem. I feel like as far as I'm concerned I'm both dyslexic and I have a math problem. at least I show signs of something because I've been not helped for most of my life and given a lot of crap for my lack of reading and writing skills. hopefully I can get the help that I need and some how keep moving forward.

Often with adults a timed reading test gives the most information. People may have learned how to read if they are Dyslexic but it is not fluent and takes time. This often influences comprehension. It is not just test scores that define dyslexics but how they achieve those scores and if strategies had to be used.

Thanks for the advice for resource help. I'm an undergrad in graphic design. I'm just glad that I finally know what I have and I'm not stupid. I've Been struggling need all the help I can get.


It is quite common for people to have dyslexia alongside other specific learning difficulties. These are called co-occurring difficulties and they can include dyscalculia. Like dyslexia, co-occurring difficulties can vary in severity, and this is one of the reasons why the impact of dyslexia varies very much from person to person. Specific Learning Difficulties (SpLDs) affect the way information is learned and processed, which may explain your difficulties. Dyslexia Action's web-site has lots of useful information and if you want free advice or support you can call one of its learning centres, details for which can be found using the following website address: dyslexiaaction.org.uk/find-us. Its specially trained staff will also advise you on the best way forward.
