Impact on career choices and progression
Video clip: Getting a diagnosis of dyslexia in adulthood helped Lyn make sense of past difficulties at school and develop strategies for future learning.
And if I was a child being diagnosed, maybe it would be more formative, or more - more impactful, some of the interventions I would have. But as a, an adult that's - you know - been through higher education and come out the other side, there's less of that. Going back into higher education, I'm more cognisant about the skills that I need to learn in order to do better or to succeed better. I'm sad that I didn't have that support earlier on with my first degree. But at least I feel confident enough to go back. I think that's a, a kind of turning point. You know, I can study. I did alright in my last course. I've always, I've always been a curious perpetual learner, and I've always done okay. But now it makes sense. Okay, I need different learning strategies in order to really process my ideas more effectively, or to write better. Yeah, so it's been - it's been good.
