My name is John and I have dyslexia. I found out that I had dyslexia when I was is 5th grade. The teachers at my old school knew almost nothing about dyslexia, and that made school even harder for me. The teachers would tried many time to help me with no results. I would take spelling tests which my parents would quiz me for days before the test. I would still miss different words every night. This troubled my parents and they felt like the teachers as well as themselves will missing something about my learning. My mother began to do some research on trouble learning for my age group. This led me to my tutor and the program that she had me followed a 10 book process. This 10 book series took me 2 years with weekly meetings with my tutor. Since I have finished the program I feel confident that I can handle challenges with my schooling. I still have times that I struggle. I have a lot of trouble with math because numbers are confusing. And note taking is hard, and is hard to pay attention is class. I hope that teachers become more aware of the signs of dyslexia so future kids do not have to go through the rough times I did before working with my tutor.
