How many of you suffer from this? It's such a constant struggle for me.

My bolding and italicizing of words are to help me with it.

Hi. I hear you. I've have dyslexia too. I don't like that it takes me longer to get academic work done than others. But I also think that needing to come up with strategies for succeeding has made me smarter.

I was diagnosed with dyslexia in the first grade. I went though the therpies for it in terms of writing and reading. I was taken off my IEP in 6th grade, but was put back on it for emotional disturbance. It still affects me to a very mild degree. Mostly in math, turning letters around, or mixing up words. I hope you find something that works for you.

Default Re: Dyslexia

I do and it's why I hate reading. I get so frustrated, reading pages over and over because they don't make sense to me, and for how long it takes to actually finish a book.

I am lucky if I read 1 book a year these days. I also have to constantly check my typing online and texts because I mix things up so easily

I donít have dyslexia, but some not specified learning disorder in memory and fine motor skills. Although I canít relate to having dyslexia, I can understand the struggle with having a learning disability. Iím glad you find that bolding and italicizing words help you. I hope you find other strategies to help you with this.
