Dyslexia? - June 28th 2013, 10:07 PM

I'm 99.99% sure I have dyslexia. I'm a pretty terrible speller and reader and I get letters jumbeld up. I don't think my parents have noticed, or they probably would have done something. Teachers don't notice either, try just circel all my mistakes. Should I tell my parents that I think I am? I don't think they'll take me seriously... Also, do you think other people would be able to tell that I am?
Help and advice is greatly apprecited!! thanks!

Tell your parents, if they think you're joking, then bring it up when you next see your doctor or teacher. I'm sure there's a test you can take to see whether or not you have it. Make sure to add (when you speak to your parents/doctor) how it effects your schoolwork and testing, if it does.
Good luck!

You may or may not have dyslexia. You really should tell your parents, explaining why you believe you have it and if they do not take you to get tested and/or to talk to your doctor about being tested, you can always speak to a teacher or guidance counselor at school about this and they can speak with your parents and recommend places where proper testing can be done so that you can find out if you are dyslexic.
Dyslexia is not a disability that would be noticed by people unless you told them. The only people that would have to know about you having it would be your teachers, parents and any other adult that would be giving you any sort of exams/providing help so that you can still do well even with dyslexia.
Hopefully this is helpful and that you get the support you need to do well in school.

I agree, we can't tell you if you have Dyslexia or not as we are not professionals, and self-diagnosis is never the way to go. Talk to your parents and set up an appointment with your regular doctor, if they are not certified to diagnose you, they will refer you to a doctor who can help you figure out exactly what it is and if it is actually dyslexia.
