I just wish it was picked up on earlier - I really do wish the fact that he enjoyed reading and read for pleasure as a child meant that the school said that there was no way he was dyslexic.
On another point - why is dyslexic so hard to spell. Surely that's cruel...
That's mostly what happened to me. I read fine and fast. They (the teacher) did have me see a speech therapist for a while when I started kindergarden I think - I guess it was one of those confunding the B and M sound or something like that.
But I don't remember seeing one in primary school, where they could have actually diagnose the dyslexia.
Turns out I most likely have "dysorthographie" with a side of dyslexia (couldn't find the word in English) it's like dyslexia (who is more about reading/writting and the order of the letters) but for grammatical rules, conjugating and the likes. They just don't make any sense for me.
Maybe the English language doesn't have that word because it's so much easier than french, clearly those that laid the foundation to this dam*ed language only meant evil.
What is funny is that the only mistakes I do in English are those that I do in French, double letters and forgeting the 'S' of the third person.
At 25 I'm very slowly starting to learn the 'rules' or a few tricks to get by in writing, but don't ask me to remember that X turns out Y because of D unless T when V. I can only do X turns into Y.
