Truth About Dyslexia

By Stephen Martin

Welcome to The Truth About Dyslexia podcast, up to 20% of the population being dyslexic (at some level) - I wanted to share my journey, what I am learning, doing and understanding to see if it can help other adult dyslexics. This is not the reading and writing stuff but what it actually means. Enjoy.
