I have dyslexia and it is a lot more than just getting numbers and letters mixed up. your brain also learns in a completly different way. for example i almost failed the first grade because i could not read. my teacher told my parents that if i could not read on a first grade level by the end of the summer she was going to have to fail me. my parents then took me to a psychologist and she diagnosed me with Dyslexia and ADD. my parents found a tutor that knew how to teach kids with dyslexia, and in 2 months i was on a 4th grade reading level. it also effects my spelling. small words such as it i forget how to spell. I am now in the 11th grade have a 4.5 GPA i am taking college classes and i am in the top 6% of my class.
having dyslexia does not mean that you are stupid.
the best team in the world. where the real Death Valley is located. the most exciting 25 seconds in college football. home of thunder and lightning. the loudest stadium in the country. has the best fans, and clemson kicks carolinas ass every year.
The state i live in. contrary to what seems to be the popular belief not all the people that live in the state of South Carolina are "Hicks", and the upstate is not "backwoods". i live in Greenville (located in the upstate) and it is one of the larget cities in the state. The school district of Greenville county is also the best in the state. The reason the state has such a low graduation rate is because we have some of the toughest academic standards in the nation. we also have one of the toughest exit exams in the county.
