Those with dyslexia have plenty of challenges ahead of them, but as they approach the age to get a driver’s license, things may become even more challenging. Let’s take a look at the 5 ways dyslexia affects driving.
1. Information processing: It’s a never ending task when driving. Dyslexics may have trouble using a clutch, while looking both ways for pedestrians, reading signs, and checking their dashboard for information.
2. Reading Road Signs: If the numbers and letters seem to jump off the page then imagine what could happen with street signs. Don’t wait to get your teenager tested if you suspect that they may be struggling with dyslexia
3. The Driving Test: Let’s not forget the actual written part of the driving test! Those that struggle with dyslexia or reading problems may have trouble passing the written part of their driving test.
