My 12-year-old daughter has a pretty kick-ass attitude about dyslexia. It’s more of a footnote¹ to her life, rather than something that defines or limits her.
Her success is a testament to her hard work and perseverance in the face of adversity–not caused by her learning differences, but by the lack of understanding and support she experienced early on at school. In particular, how the “wait and see” approach (also known as the “failure model“) made school harder than it needed to be for her in the long run.
Given her experience with the education system, what would she like you to know?
5 things a 12-year-old wants you to know about dyslexia:
Hello I’m a tween and this is one of my favourite books, and no NOT James Bond [but he’s her uncle]. The first book was made by jill marshall in 2006. jane blonde is a book about a girl who lived an ordinary life doing ordinary and boring stuff until… the horror G-MAMMA a grotesque women who seems to be insane! She tells her that her mother is a hostage of Copernicus hench men [Copernicus is an evil guy with a sun mask hmm] and she is a spylet, obviously she does not believe her and walks home. When she gets there her mother’s not home. In summary, in the rest of the series *inhales*, she finds her mom, find her dad, she fights Copernicus and morphs him into a human/squid, save the world more then once and changes the history of the earth DONE *huff puff*.
