Dyslexia

What Is Dyslexia?
And What Does It Mean To Me?

Listening to my 8th grade science textbook using my Victor Reader Stream.

In addition to my invasive species and science blog posts, I’ll be sharing stories and videos about my adventures with dyslexia.

I really hope this information I’m sharing will help people with dyslexia stay informed about all the resources and technology available to make our lives easier.

And I hope that even folks without dyslexia, or teachers who work with kids who have dyslexia, will find this information useful!

But most important, I hope that I can inspire other kids who have dyslexia to know that anything is possible and to never become discouraged. We can achieve whatever we set our minds to!

    I’m Dyslexic too and I think it’s really nice what you siad. When I found out I had Dyslexia I thought I would suck at school but, I quickly learned that’s not what Dyslexia mean’t. It’s been a very interesting experience.

    • Hi Grace,

      Thanks so much for visiting my blog. I’m glad you like what I wrote about dyslexia.

      You’re so right about not stinking at school. It can actually be a lot of fun sometimes and we find out how smart we really are! 🙂

    Thank you so much for your story. My 9 year old daughter is dyslexic and the information you shared will be very helpful in her life.

    • Hi Miss Camille,

      Thanks for visiting my blog! And I’s so happy that my information can help your daughter. Sometimes having dyslexia can seem like a real challenge but technology has helped me so much. I know it will help your daughter too! 🙂

        I have dyslexia too 😦 I have to read and type a lot and my parents support me a lot.

      • Hi Michal,

        Have you tried voice to text? It’s not perfect, but that helps me type less. I also get all my textbooks from Learning Ally. Parents are great! I don’t know what I would do without mine. Hope school is going well for you, and thanks for the comment!
