Adults with literacy difficulties

Literacy difficulties are difficulties any person may have with reading or writing. The person’s literacy difficulties may (or may not) occur as a result of another condition (such as aphasia after a stroke). Although literacy difficulties are usually referred to using the term ‘dyslexia’, this disorder is usually only diagnosed when there is a specific inability or pronounced difficulty in learning to read and/or spell.

The Speech and Language Therapist works with Adults to identify specific areas of strengths and needs. Together the Speech and Language Therapist and the client will identify functional and collaborative goals to target in therapy sessions.
