Default Journey into Dyslexia

I've just watched a documentary called "Journey into Dyslexia" a must watch for anyone or parents of someone blessed with this gift.

If you need a crutch in life and abuse your dyslexia status as that crutch, do the rest of us a favour and jump off a bridge.

I'm dyslexic but it doesn't bother me... Spell check!

I just get confused when the PC tries to trick me with American spellings

What do you mean by abuse your dyslexia?

There was a girl in my Uni class who refused to do any written work at all because she was dyslexic, strangely enough she left in the first year

hasn't stopped your employer then

I have been told I am dyslexic but I am not that bad, I am just very slow at reading and writing. I have a habit of thinking one word and writing something different which is annoying but I usually notice when I have done it.

I know many people who are a lot worse but are brilliant illustrators

Nope. How he copes is by writing intentionally illegibly to hide his spellings. I can usually make out what he's scribbling. His red/green blindness has it's issues, but we have color charts that he uses that have specific color codes.

Jade spell check and the Oxford are God sent. I keep setting my PC to English English or South African English only to find overtime it jumps back to American English which kind of does get under my skin.

Much like Fraser the only downside with spell check is to try and workout which word I'm after hence the Oxford. The worst of that is to keep checking the "word" and the spelling over and over to try and find it in the Oxford. If all else fails I'll substitute it with another word with the same or similar meaning. I write from memory which can in itself be problematic. Sometimes the smallest shortest words get the better of me like "were" or "where" and it can be quite frustrating. Numbers are just fun, phone calls can be entertaining and expensive calling the wrong number, so its check and check again before dialling.

Yes it does to a certain extent Fraser. The documentary is more on how to live and cope with dyslexia - it dispels the long held myth that ones stupid or slow.

Ashley sadly people need a crutch in life to justify why they behave in a certain manner i.e. its not my fault I'm a drunk my parents were/where divorced. Nonsense you a drunk because you choose to be a drunk. Just because one is dyslectic does not give one the right to use one dyslexia as an excuse for all ones shortcomings. I hope that explains what it is I'm trying to say, without writing a short book.

I do the same Alison. I will hardly ever print and really need to concentrate to try and get it right. Far safer to scribble. The worst is if I have to write something down while someone is watching me. I have my own form of shorthand or I explain I write like a rabbit and hand them the pen and paper. The PC can be very intimidating because one can not hide, so its check and check again. As anal as it might sound this post has taken the better part of an hour to write. Now to spell check and check it again before sending, with a good likely hood of having to edit it once sent.

Regards
Trevor
