After remediation it can go fast

Dyslexia: News from the web:

A student who could not read until he was aged 13 has graduated from university with a first class degree and is now studying for a PhD.

William Carter, 22, has severe dyslexia and dyspraxia and was mocked because he could not read at primary school.

His grades improved rapidly after his dyslexia was diagnosed.

Mr Carter achieved a degree in politics and international relations from the University of Bristol and is now studying in the United States.

“Learning how to read and write made the world more intelligible to me and, ultimately, made me more intelligible to the world,” he said.

“Fundamentally, dyslexia made me who I am today.”

Dyslexia: News from the web:

My personal journey commenced over twenty years ago in an attempt to navigate our national broken special education system, as a novice mom.  I have two sons each diagnosed with ADHD and Learning Disabilities.  Both boys are characterized as twice exceptional; highly gifted and learning disabled – meaning their intellect level is over 140, but their reading and writing levels are in the 67-70 range.  An average Intellect level is 100 making the discrepancy between their intellect level and learning ability quite significant.  Both boys were lopsided in terms of learning.
