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.

Dyslexia is way more then just letters, words and numbers; and you can never get rid of it, it says with you the rest of you life. I'm dyslexic, have been for my my whole life; i have to admit is sucks ass but it some times has it benefits. I get extra time on tests and get to use tools to help me with homework. Now I know some of u use the dyslexia or dyslexic it describe someone stupid; "now imagine your in english class, the teacher asks you to read out loud to the class. You start to read but then panic because you do not knew how to say the next word or the word after that. The class is looking at you as you try to figure out the word; someone finally says the word out loud but what about the other words. . ."
The is what dyslexics go through everyday of there life because reading is such am important part of our daily lives, and if you can't read very well life starts to get even harder. Then signs on the road on the freeway become difficult; signing papers reading business letters becomes hard. Then along come the people that might be like you; they mock the the ones that can't read, call them stupid. Then you say "oh that's so dyslexic," saying to them that the disorder they have makes them stupid. You may it not that important but to them it is very important, they lose self esteem; i remember back in grade school i never wanted to go to school because the kids would laugh at me. It all hurt so much to me. So the next time you get ready to say "That was so dyslexic," think about that many people you may be hurting and put yourself in their shoes. Because a dyslexic's life is already difficult without you making fun of them. :)
I am dyslexic. There are times when I hate dyslexia, there are times when I love it; but it is a part of me, so I just have to deal with it. So I just think to myself that I have my dyslexic, it doesn't have me. I think of it as a gift God gave it to me to share with it world. And I am, one person at a time.

A reading disorder. When people mix up similar-looking letters, such as:

d, b, p, q
Is it a "d"?
Or a "p"?
Is is a "b"?
Or a "q"?


d.
It's a perfect d, except that it's really a q.

A way of palming from the state and getting freebies for basically being slightly inept at the lingual version of mathematics.
Anyone know a bad mathematician? (yes, most of us). Anyone know one who gets a new pc when they go to uni? :P
