Postby kirsty21 » Fri Feb 28, 2014 1:51 pm

Be proud of yourself and tell people that you're dyslexic.

You're at college and that is a fantastic achievement for someone with dyslexia.. all too often dyslexics give up and decide that they're thick.


If the people at college knew how much of a struggle it is for you to learn the things that they find easy then they would/should all stand there and applaud you.


I have personally climbed mountains to reach the places that other people have used a helicopter to get to.. so have you xx

Absolutely agree with this last post. The more people know about dyslexia, the easier it will be for them to look for solutions. Sometimes its as easy as repositioning the reading material http://www.pireading.com . For others, audio books can make all the difference.

Simply hearing others openly discussing their problems can lead to make you feel better about yourself. Take a look at the website for the 1in5 Initiative. I think you'll enjoy it. http://www.explore1in5.org
