I have dyslexia. I was wondering if anyone other than me had it. I see that ADD and ADHD is talked about but no one has said anything about dyslexia. I was just wondering could some one have dyslexia and ADD? I know Dyslexia isn't a medical problum but i didn't know were to ask.
Just looking. do any of u have dyslexia?
I thought dyslexia was a medical condition, in the sense that a part of the brain doesn't work as well as it should. (As opposed to my brain, which hardly works at all, sometimes.)
I have VERY mild dyslexia, it wasn't picked up at school till I was around 13/14. Although there are many different forms, I have problems doing maths, reading and writing. Over the last few years I've taught myself to slow down when doing things. I used to cover my "problems" with my writing by making it unreadable, that way when someone came to read it they could notice the spelling mistakes and such. It's something that I've learnt to deal with and am not afraid to ask for help anymore when I need it.
I've met many people who suffer the same as I do, and they all lead very productive lives and most in high profile jobs Fire / Ambulance Service to name but two.
If you can teach your self to deal with the problem, I'm sure you will be fine
Oh, and in-case your wondering... I type first in Win word then cut and paste :wink:
My mom had to fight with my school to get me tested. It runs in the family my mom's dad has it. So by the time i got into 5th grade they had tested me. I was so behind and had to have extra help. My mom wouldn't let them hold me back because she knew i had it and the school wasn't doing what she asked them to do. They just told her i was lazy and that i didn't lesson. mine isn't mild. I can't spell and Math is so hard for me. I am a slow reader too. I may have to read something over two or tree times before i get what it's saying.
I am a dyslexic, who is looking into have ADHD. There are overlaping syptoms. Are you taking a medication for your ADHD and are they helping you any.
You can have both? i didn't know that. i don't like to set still i'm always moving around. Some one asked me if i had ADD and i said no but i'm dyslexic. He said i could have both. I don't think i do i'm just active.
