I know it might seem like there's not a ton of information on hyperlexia out there in the interwebs, but trust me, there is a lot more now then there was even just a couple of years ago. You have to be prepared to do some digging every now and then in order to find some good information. Or, you could save yourself the hassle and just read my blog - HA!

But seriously, I wish I could find more resources from the hyperlexic adults themselves. That is what's truly missing right now if you ask me.

I personally want to learn more about hyperlexia in the teen years and as an adult. I want to learn about strategies that helped these hyperlexic adults with their comprehension and visualization.

Basically, I want them to give me insight into how to best help my son as he grows because guess what. He's growing up fast! Too fast, if you ask me, but I digress...

It's important to listen to these hyperlexic adults. They know what it's like to be hyperlexic.

So here are some videos from hyperlexic adults about what it's like to grow up with hyperlexia so you can truly get a better understanding of what hyperlexia is and what strategies work best.

Hyperlexic Adults Describe their Hyperlexia & What it was Like to Grow Up with Hyperlexia

When it comes to truly understanding our neurodiverse children, it is important to learn from neurodiverse adults themselves. Yes, I'm well aware that no two people with hyperlexia will be the same, but the insights you can gain from listening to a hyperlexic adult is huge. They can really give you an idea of how our hyperlexic children truly learn and understand the world around them.

So I encourage you to watch each of these videos to help you get a better understanding of what hyperlexia is and what it's like to grow up with hyperlexia. And I will add more videos to this list as I find them. So to you hyperlexic adults out there: please share your stories. We want to hear from you!

I hope you truly enjoy listening to these hyperlexic adult's experiences and find them helpful.
