Re: Schools & Dyslexia??!!??

Hey there,

Im sorry to hear how your struggling - my mum is going through the same thing with me and it is really getting to her. Im 16 and for the last 3 years my mother has been fighting my school. I have done mulitple tests at school - not real dyslexic ones, just the standard ones for children and young adults. Due to me getting quite a high score on these tests, the school have refused me help - they think im not dyslexic enough. It is really affecting my grades as i dont have enouogh times in exams to really finish or read over my work.


Im sorry i cant offer you help, but please hold in there and keep fighting to get your son what help he needs. The help will come in handy as he gets older and i hope he wont need to struggle like i have been doing over the past few years. You know yourself when your son needs help, the schools are not always right. Good luck with this.
