I have dyslexia and it is a lot more than just getting numbers and letters mixed up. your brain also learns in a completly different way. for example i almost failed the first grade because i could not read. my teacher told my parents that if i could not read on a first grade level by the end of the summer she was going to have to fail me. my parents then took me to a psychologist and she diagnosed me with Dyslexia and ADD. my parents found a tutor that knew how to teach kids with dyslexia, and in 2 months i was on a 4th grade reading level. it also effects my spelling. small words such as it i forget how to spell. I am now in the 11th grade have a 4.5 GPA i am taking college classes and i am in the top 6% of my class.

Dyslexia is a neurological condition, whereby afflicted persons process all information with, what is often termed as, the right side of the brain. As a result, most dyslexics have significant difficulties processing words or numbers, as well as superior conceptual and spatial abilities. When coupled with above-average intelligence and work ethic, dyslexia often results in genius. Philosophers (e.g. Bacon) and scientists (e.g. Einstein), and substantial numbers of artists (40% of some art schools) are generally thought to of had this condition. Unfortunately, modern dyslexics face significant disadvantages with learning and testing formats (particularly standardized tests like the SAT), leading to incorrect assessments of their ability. While dyslexics can technically receive benefits (e.g. extra time on exams), formal testing costs (which often total thousands of dollars and are rarely covered by insurance) preclude almost all impoverished dyslexics from getting them, despite overwhelming evidence that impoverished populations face a Dyslexia epidemic. At the same time, wealthy populations are significantly over-diagnosed with dyslexia.
