How can I get over my dyslexia? Topic: Getting words mixed up when writing a letter
June 25, 2019 / By Carey
Question: I've had it ever snice I started being homschooled and it's getting worse, I hope that whenI get into high school it'll stop, but if it doesn't do you have any ideas? I have dyslexia in the way of not being able to write or type some words, I can read fine. But I type and write words wrong, the letters are right but they are a bit mixed up. Example:e-amil is really e-mail.

many years ago the canadian government did reading experiments with dyslexia and coloured glasses. they found that by wearing green lenses that the dyslexia did not happen. i also tried this and it worked as well as wearing green coloured contact lenses. i also trained myself to read license plates when we were out in the car to stop me reversing numbers; over repeated numbers reading and a bit of time one summer semester, it worked. good luck!

Dyslexia is where the brain misinterprets what it sees or hears, and dyslexia can affect all aspects of learning, reading, writing, spelling, maths, memory, sequencing skills, reversal of letters, p, q, b, d, m, w, and some numbers, transposing of words such as was to saw, omitting words and difficulty pronouncing words, especially unfamiliar words, and confusion between left & right and difficulty reading maps etc. Or a person may only have one area of difficulty, such as Dyscalculia which causes difficulty grasping math concepts, struggle to do multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, fractions, formulas, confuses math symbols and remembering times tables. Numbers can be reversed or transposed 519 might look like 915 or 17 looks like 71, 9 & 3 might look like an 8 etc. Dysgraphia, where the persons hand writing is very messy, words can be a mix of capitol and lower case letters, words can be squashed together or to widely spaced, spelling difficulty and some letters such as b, d, p, q, m, w etc are reversed. Do you know if there is any family members such as parents, siblings, aunts, uncles & cousins? As Dyslexia is a hereditary disorder, which means having a close family member will increase your risk of having dyslexia, dyscalculia or dysgraphia. It sounds like you may have dyscalculia. Speak to your parents or school counselor, your parents or the school may organize for you to be tested. As dyslexia is a complex disorder and testing should be done a qualified dyslexia specialist. Schools generally send students to a Educational Psychologist and many cannot test for dyslexia, so your parents/school needs to ask if they can test specifically for dyslexia. I know you said you did an online test, just remember that online tests are not proof of having dyslexia, but are very useful to having further testing if it indicates you may have dyslexia. The last link is an online test that can be printed off so you can show your parents, teachers and the dyslexia assessor. Both my daughter and I are dyslexic.

When i was very young I was diagnosed with dyslexia, and they told my mother I would have a learning disability, and may never be able to read. My sister held her comic books up to the mirror in her room and I could read them. This is how I learned to read. I have since learned to read normal and do fare at it. I still have trouble sometimes. But most of the time I do just great.

Dyslexia does not get worse, it does not go away. You must train your brain. It takes a lot of hard work. Have your parents take you to a learning specialist to help you make accomodations for your learning differences. Homeschooling and dyslexia are mutually exclusive.

I had mild dyslexia in the 2nd grade and all I had was people helping me to learn to read better. Mine phased itself out, but you could always ask someone to read things for you, that's what Tom Cruise did.

Dyslexia is a frustrating condition, that impairs a persons ability to read, write, spell, maths, memory, sequencing skills, reversal of letters, p, q, b, d, m, w, and some numbers, transposing of words such as was to saw, omitting words and difficulty pronouncing words, especially unfamiliar words, and confusion between left & right and difficulty reading maps. Some people may only have one area of deficit, Dysgraphia, where the persons hand writing is very messy, words can be a mix of capitol and lower case letters, words can be squashed together or to widely spaced, spelling difficulty and some letters such as b, d, p, q, m, w etc are reversed. Or Dyscalculia, is where a person has difficulty grasping math concepts, struggles to do multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, fractions, formulas, confuses math symbols and remembering times tables. Numbers can be reversed or transposed 519 might look like 915 or 17 looks like 71, 9 & 3 might look like an 8 etc. Dyslexia, Dysgraphia & Dyscalculia is a heredity disorder, so do you know if any family members have dyslexia? You can talk to your school counselor or teacher about your concerns with your difficulty with maths etc, and see what they think, if they feel you may benefit from having formal testing, then they may organize for a test to be done, but they will need permission from your parents. Both my daughter and I are dyslexic.
