Any suggestions or tips ? thanks - Sarah

Toe by Toe book on Amazon. You need someone to help you practice 20 mins a day but you'll fly through it. It works for adults as well as children. Good luck.

Hi sarah
I suffered from dyslexia and hate a similar problem during my GSCEs and A levels - I would do really well in my coursework then when it came to exams i would get Es and Us.

I hated that. I have now been through a programme that has turned my life around you may want to give that a look? the name of the clinic is Dore or aka DDAT.

I am now at university and have obtained a number of first class marks.

dear sarah i realy know how you feel, but try not to copare your self to other people. and remember that everyone has some thing that they find difficult. may be you should tell your teacher how you are feeling and may be give her some information on dyslexia.

Hi Sarah,

I just recently got diagnosed with dyslexia and I am 53 years old. I can relate to your struggles. My job has a lot of reading involved and explaining what I'm reading to the ppl I'm talking with. I work in a call center and my supervisors don't understand why I can't be cross trained for other tasks. It has had a huge affect on me. My psychologist said if I needed a note to explain my situatation to my supervisor she'd give me one, have u thot about getting a note from a doctor to explain your situation to your teachers?

Hi Sarah,

Have u thot about getting a note from the doctor or psychologist that did the testing for your diagnosis? My psychologist said if the folks at my job gave me a hard time she would do that for me. They don't understand me either and r making it hard for me. I can't be cross trained to do other tasks and what I am doing is difficult bc I have to read and explain things to callers (I work in a call center). It's hard to understand what I'm reading.
