I was wondering do you have friends come to you becouse you think out of the so called box more than they do and want your imput?
I unfortunately grew up with dyslexia and have had no help with it what so ever and I had to learn to cope with it. but unfortunately I believe I have passed it a long to my oldest daughter. Since I had to figure it out on my own I can't really formulate anything into words to help her. she is only 6yrs old and I can see it in her homework and when she is doing crafts when she is makeing cards for people. It breaks my heart. where should I start to help her. Not really financially set enough to get the right doctors to check it out.
Reversing letters as I do word processing, beginning a word with the end syllable, difficulty in "dialing" phone numbers (thankful for voice dialing),and a number of other issues all began shortly after triple bypass surgery. Due to the anesthetic which can still be in one's body systems up to 9 months after surgery impaired my memory for a while. I had to concentrate particularly hard to remember simple things. I developed my own therapy for resharpening my memory skills. The dyslexic issues have only dissipated in a small degree even though I still try and rid myself of the problem. Even after 13 years with little improvement, I still am trying to overcome what may not be overcome.
I don't have time to leave a comment except that I have some dyslexic issues precipitated my major surgery over a decade ago. It's frustrating to know how it was before dyslexic issues and now having to dear with them....Later,
I'm not diagnosed dyslexic but I'm pretty sure seeing as I get right and left confused, I can't always spell all that well, decoding is an arduous process, and I skip or reread lines when reading.
I'm thinking of getting an official assessment, but I'm living abroad at the moment, and the country I'm in doesn't seem to have much in the way of interventions or assessments.
Glad to see this group!
