Re: Schools & Dyslexia??!!??

Ozzybug,

You fight with everything you have.I have a daughter thats dyslexic.We had schools follow a 504 plan and were very fortunate that they did.She has now graduated.She's very smart,but has difficulty in a few areas.Mainly spelling.She attempted college,but was very discouraged.She plans on re-enrolling come winter.
Schools need to reeducate there teachers and teach them how to teach all students,just not the straight A students.My oldest has dyslexia,but my other children are 4.0's.I put many hours in to teaching my daughter as for times I didn't feel the teachers were being effective.This time has paid off.And I'd do it in a heart beat again if I had to.
