Hi, IÂ´ve never had problems with reading and spelling, but I canÂ´t say where is the left or the right until I think about it and shake my right hand (Like writing: I know that I write with my right hand so when I shake it I know then that there is the right).
I canÂ´t even count a line of matches or little things, as soon as I reach the fifth object it seems all them start to jump and itÂ´s impossible to me to continue counting.
My mother has the same problem as me, and she even canÂ´t write a telephone number in the correct order without checking it twice.
I must add more possible symptons:
I learned too late to "read" a clock, I still have to count with my fingers and I have problems while speaking: The words sometimes arenĂ‚Â´t correct and sometimes I seem to have a stammer, but I donĂ‚Â´t think I got it....
My sister stills read with the finger because she says that without it she canĂ‚Â´t follow the text without jump to the wrong line...
I am not to sure myself what it is like as i dont have it but my fiance does and he finds it difficult to spell, he used to not be able to read stuff but he is now good at that thanks to the internet, i guess it helps, i hope you find some help although my bf just did it on his own and with my help and friends
might be discalcula BUT i am dyslexic and i can read for pleasure well but nor for information EG learining the new time table or even reading it for collage was a night mare and few months into collage it still is and have you got memory prblems also cuz i do 2
Interesting thing this, I do not think I am dyslexic, I can read and write fine, recognise words and spell them fine. I make mistakes for sure. But..I can also miss out whole words sometimes, when I write, I can often miss out entire lines of text, it's like I thought I wrote it, but on re-re-reading it, yes, sometimes I need to proof read what I say 3-4 times, before I spot the missing words. I wonder sometimes, if this is a kind of dyslexia, not as serious as not being able to spell or recognise the words as being mispelt, I've seen how true dyslexics type..but I do wonder if what I do, is some, as yet undiscovered version of it. I've never seen any mention of it anywhere in any medical statement, people tell me I'm fine, then ask me what I ment...cos I missed out a line of text.
Odd world we live in. Some say practice makes perfect, I've been typing for 25 years...it doesn't.
Now, I need to read all I've written to make sure it makes sence. That was pretty good actually. Only missed a few words.
I am 50, and doin not so great in my Master's Program. An instructor noticed that I have been transposing letters and numbers on exams. This explains so much to me, I have gone through Breast Cancer, (2003-2007) Chemotherapy,Radiation, 11 surgeries. I know that I did lose a lot of memory, so when I started back to school and got A's in some classes, and then C's in others. I just didn't understand what was the deal. This dyslexia makes sense to me now. Nothing like the change of life! Lol
Rugster, I do the same thing. When I write my mind races ahead of my fingers and I often have to slow it down and go back. I think it might be part of my dyslexia. All I can say to anyone wondering is go get tested. These days there are tons of places (mostly universities) that test for it. I can recommend some for the chicagoland area but I'm sure you can google testing sites.
