Dyslexia and ADHD: Which Is It or Is It Both?
Let’s have a look at Dyslexia and ADHD. How are they different, and what similarities should you be aware of? Often we see that either dyslexia or ADHD is diagnosed, while in reality, it’s both. This video looks closely at six ADHD symptoms and how they overlap with dyslexia. Some symptoms can be observed in both individuals with ADHD and dyslexia, like, for example, forgetfulness. Some signs look similar, but the underlying cause is different. In such cases, we must take a closer look to discover what is happening.
One thought on “Dyslexia and ADHD: Which Is It or Is It Both?”
I’m 62, “gifted,” and certainly somewhat dyslexic, probably adhd. Never had a test that showed any of that. I confuse directions all the time, and transpose letters/numbers/other relationships. I’m just now facing my own and my child’s struggles. Being bright can be a cover for the perceptual differences in a child, and while it may make a test score seem average, overall IQ tests can be significantly depressed by things like dyslexia and adhd.
