Could it be dyslexia?
Having a child diagnosed with dyslexia can be a confusing experience. While dyslexia makes reading more difficult, everyone can learn to read. Dyslexia does not define a person or their potential. In fact, my students often express relief when they have a name for their struggles. We need to keep expectations high for students with learning differences. Among the many dyslexia success stories are Thomas Edison, Stephen Spielberg, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Charles Schwab.
