Why do I have a Problem telling Left and right

Postby FlowersJasmin » Wed Mar 27, 2013 2:59 am

I regard myself as an above average person when it comes to reading and writing however, I always have problems differentiating left from right. Its not easy for me to give directions especially when I have to refer to left and right I have to really figure out which side is left/ right. Could I be dyslexic?

My husband is dyslexic and has the same problem. When I am driving and he is giving me directions he never says "left or right"...its more like "turn there". It used to be annoying but as coming to understand his learning disability I just have him point. It is a trait that appears common in some with dyslexia.

I'm dyslexic and have difficulty differentiating between left and right, however, I have almost every other symptom as well. You probably don't have dyslexia if this is your only symptom, but tell your doctor you'd like a referral for a psycho-education assessment if you feel dyslexia is negatively impacting other areas of your life.

Did reading and writing come easy for you as a child?
Did you have trouble tying your shoelaces?
