Re: I have a spelling problem

i have a lot of difficulty doing some of the things u mentioned. I was diagnosed with something called spelling dysgraphia. I read really well and do great on things such as math but i cant proof read my own work and cant spell very well at all. It might help to do some research on some things like dyslexia and maybe dysgraphia. There are many things u can do to make the things u find hard easier such as using a computer more and reading your documents backwards or even just word by word. good luck i hope this helps

Re: I have a spelling problem

This certainly sounds like a reading disorder. You need to be tested by someone who gives you an IQ test, and then tests about how fast you read, how well you spell, and then how well you can sound out words you don't know. The last test is usually one where you have to pronounce words that aren't real. Be sure to see someone who really knows reading disorders as lots of psychologists don't actually know anything about it. A spelling problem is a significant predictor of a sight or phonetic reading problem.
