Dyslexia: End of Journey
I just saw this book and it kinda of reminds me that we are at the end of the journey fighting dyslexia. Of course I will never forget the battles fought and so there isn't a need to chronicle them here. Had we continue with DAS, I think they might make her a poster girl, but we turned our backs on them. They had helped to diagnose her dyslexia but were pretty poor at helping her cope.
Her O levels certificate has a mark to show that she was given additional time but by the time she took the A levels she was with everyone. When the cert comes later this year, you cannot tell that she was dyslexic. Well she still is, and playing to her strengths and avoiding her weaknesses, she would avoid subjects that demand too much spelling.
Will I have to give her spelling in NUS? I don't know. May be that's why I didn't think we have scored a total victory against dyslexia but on paper you can no longer tell.
It has taken this item at Amazon Kindle to help me realize the battle is basically over.
