Dyslexia

I recently "attended" (via zoom) an in-service on Dyslexia. I never knew it was a spectrum disorder. (the stereo-type of dyslexia {reversals} is the least common form)

A milder form described me to a T

- the person is unable to identify the main idea
- the person is unable to pull the information needed for math word problems
- the person may be unable to express the main idea clearly/concisely in writing
- note taking isn't notes, but everything

Re: Dyslexia

excited - that there's a reason (if I do have it) that I'm not able to do some things.



(it also means to me that its NOT {possibly} an IQ issue, but a brain processing issue)
