Are you sure you’re just dyslexic? Studies show that over 62% of dyslexics have a combination of different learning differences. ADHD, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, and Anxiety Disorders are among the most common differences combined with dyslexia. This video provides an overview and an unofficial test, in which you might get a better idea of your own mix of learning differences. I go over signs and symptoms, as well as relevant questions specific to each condition.
Here’s some of the literature I consulted to create this video:
- Hendren, R. L., et al. (2018). Recognizing psychiatric comorbidity with reading disorders. Frontiers in Psychiatry 9: 101.
- Rosen, Peg (2017). Dyslexia and Anxiety: What You Need to Know.
