Hi Blog world,

I just wanted to take a moment and talk about my second disability-Dyslexia.  For those that would like to know, according to http://www.medicinenet.com/dyslexia/article.htm “Dyslexia is a learning disability that affects a person’s ability to read and write, and spell.” I was diagnosed with Dyslexia went I was in second grade.  I don’t remember very much about my training other than we used to card to help use learn the sounds of letters.  Because of this early training, I was taught how to read, but not how to spell.

Spelling and misuse of words, has been my biggest struggle in school.  It takes me a long time for me to edit my work and still sometimes I still don’t get all of my wording or spelling right.  Click on this video link to see  an example of what it’s like to have this disability, and what it’s like for me to write some of my work: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbiD7VDz9oA

Many of my friends say that because I have Dyslexia, I have my own special language, which we joke-ling call “Amanda Language.” When you get to learn how to read my language, it mostly is easy to translate, even though sometime it can’t be translated back into Standard English.  It makes my very upset when I can’t get the word that I want down on paper, or that I have to use a low vocabulary to say what I want.  I know that I am very smart, and even though it takes me longer to work within my language problems I can write, and read, and even though I can’t always get my spelling right.

There is hope for those who have Dyslexia scientist and researchers are working around the clock to find ways to help us learn to deal with our disability, why our disability is occurring, and hopefully one day find a cure for it.

If anyone has any question please ask in the comments below,

Blog soon,
