    I'm 16 with dyslexia

    and it takes me twice as longs to do homework or class work than my friends. My parents don't think it's a serious problem so they ignore it. It's really hard to get through the school day sometimes.

    Thank God I’m Dyslexic.

      I was always the dumb kid at primary school, ridiculed (yes I had to cheek the spelling on this one) by the teachers and students alike, and made to sit in the back of the class at my own special desk. (The only thing missing was the dunce cap) As you would expect, I...

    Yeah, surprise I'm dyslexic.

    Why I'm posting this is because I feel like young people who have dyslexia are misunderstood. I remember when I started first grade, it was horrible. My teacher singled me out, she even went as far as asking the principal to take me out of the school and called me dumb. I felt...

    I Am Dyslexic And Can'T Spell But I Love Reading

    I honestly hate that it will never go away. That being dyslexic affects every part of me. my brain is a file cabinet that will never organise. I can't spell the same word the same way! But I love to read.

    I was diagnosed with dyslexia

    when I was a kid. I don't feel like I am but there are times when I write stuff backwards. While reading some words at times are difficult to immediately make out. I guess that's the dyslexia.
