My Turn: A father’s hope after daughter’s dyslexia diagnosis

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Three years ago, I didn’t feel I deserved the handcrafted gift my 8-year-old daughter made me for Fathers Day. It had been a rough school year for her. Her teachers had noted she wasn’t reading at the level of her classmates. This prompted the school to provide a reading specialist who told us that she would catch up if she worked harder and focused more. Wanting to do the right thing, I pushed her to work harder.

We ran through flash cards in the car, while we set the table for dinner and before she went to bed. She spent extra time on homework every night. Still she wasn’t making progress. All the added pressure was straining our relationship, and I felt like I had let her down. I started dreading the flash card drill sessions.

A personal story

Dyslexia: News from the web:

This story sent to us by Victoria:

Hi

I would like to share my Journey to Become a Writer, I was bullied at school, because I couldn’t spell, leaving me feeling isolated until my twin sister returned to the class with the morning register.

We shared the same learning difficulties and helped each other through them. We never received outside support and had to achieve everything on our own.

Both of us left school in 1986 with eight CSE grades of one to four, which we found outstanding under the circumstances.

At the age of thirty-one, I discovered I had dyslexia. This diagnosis lifted the darkened cloud from above me. I was also diagnosed with Irlen Syndrome, which is sensitivity to light.

Irlen Syndrome affects my ability to read or write on white paper, words will seem to melt on the page, blurring everything together.

Overlays of coloured plastic help ease this discomfort, and with the help of my rose-tinted glasses, I understand why I was never able to take dictation.

At the age of forty-two, a burning passion for writing I once had in my youth resurfaced. My learning disabilities had always kept me from trying to write, but with a new understanding of my challenges, I tried again.

With hard work and determination, I faced my arch nemesis once and for all. In 2012 I joined a short story and novel-writing course held at the local college. I was apprehensive when I joined my fellow writers.

Now I’m proud to have my book published on Amazon.

www.amazon.co.uk/Warchilds-Dreams-V-Anna-Smith-ebook/dp/B00P6LDFTQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1494267003&sr=1-

 

Even as an adult student I was able to follow my dream and achieve my life long goal, and I feel amazing being given this opportunity to share my story and offer others encouragement.

Kind regards

Victoria
