You might be wondering what the heck is Dyslexia, its a disorder that make it difficult to interpret symbol or words correctly, as result you read thing you did not expect, for example you associate some symbol whit a word, but your brain thinks its an other word.

How did this effect me during my school years, the first years when your trying to learn to read and write it extremely difficult, 'b' and 'd' was big problem back then this problem has slowly disappear whit years I have lived whit this, when you are reading the wrong words and you having problem concentrating it takes lot of energy trying to understand what is written, I often needed to read the text 2 or 3 times to understand what it was saying, this days one time is all it takes, reading and writing is some thing you get better at whit time.

One thing I like say about school system is that its not a good idea to return a paper to a kid, whit just red underlining its not motivating, the kid is going just give up, if you are going to teach a kid, how to read and write, start whit simple things like where to put . or , it might sound silly, but if always get a red underlining the kid is going to give up and not even learn the simple things, I know there are many bad teachers out there that do not motivate when its needed.
