Well-being Sessions

Dealing with the mental health struggles that come with dyslexia and other learning disorders.

What’s the connection to dyslexia?

Stress and anxiety increase when we’re in situations over which we have little or no control. All people, young and old, can experience overwhelming stress and exhibit signs of anxiety, but children, adolescents, and adults with dyslexia are particularly vulnerable. That’s because many individuals do not fully understand the nature of their learning disability, and as a result, tend to blame themselves for their own difficulties. Years of self-doubt may erode a person’s self-esteem, making them less able to tolerate the challenges of school, work, or social interactions leaving them more stressed and anxious.
