DYSLETIC PROGRAM FOR ADULTS
We provide DysLetics programmes for adults of all ages as dyslexia does not only affect children but adults as well.
Adults with dyslexia or dyspraxia are more likely to have low levels of confidence in their work and social life. Studies show that including physical activity in your daily routine helps to boost these low levels of self-esteem in adults. Therefore, we focus on providing interventions such as our Athletics, Eating Healthy + Exercise = Healthy Body and Recoup programmes so that adults with these difficulties have the safe space to enhance their cognitive and physical skills.
Helping our participants enhance their physical skills means that they are staying active and healthy which is fundamental for older adults especially those with physical and learning difficulties as mobility becomes more difficult with age but also due to their dyslexia/dyspraxia. We provide a variety specialist services to support our participants such as group and 1-2-1 physical activities where we focus on light and accessible movements to help strengthen muscles and develop motor skills. We also offer services such as:
- Mobility therapy
- Hip and Joint flexor exercise
While we believe that physical activity is extremely fundamental for our dyslexic participants, we also understand how important it is to improve work and life skills.
Studies have shown that 4 out of 10 unemployed people are dyslexic and we want to be able to help this statistic decrease by providing programmes such as Mentoring and Life Skills interventions specifically for those with these difficulties.
Some adults may not have been given this type of support in the past so we are here to give them the support that they have missed out on.
