in doing a dyslexia test at college soon.......i can spell complex words normally but have an issue with vowels and have difficulty writing.......i often start writing a word with a letter from the middle of the spelling.....i have to write in BLOCK CAPITALS to slow me down......i also have trouble with numbers.....i can remember strings of numbers but have difficulty with simple maths.....
BUT my college course is a change of career thing......my problems didnt stop me doing six years mechanical/engineering with many distinctions......my only problem was talking to Tidders(deluxmotorwerks) about VW's........ :D :D :D :D

You can be shit at spelling without being dyslexic,

I was in special classes for spelling and was quite slow at reading even though I was by no means stupid at school.

It turned out I had another problem that was very similar, so I get the same benifits as someone with dyslexia, unfortunately, this was only diagnosed by the time I'd got to uni :rolleyes:

I got diagnosed at Uni as being severly Dislexic. Because my mother was a special needs teacher she had spotted it when I was very young, and despite me not wanting to be formally diagnosed at this point for fear of labelling, she made me do extra classes in english (where my dyslexia exhibits itself most) after school and provided spelling books by sound. You could really hardly tell without a proper tests...but it shows that through proper education and specialist tuition most Dyslexia can be mitigated.
The main issue that remains for me is reading...and stringing sentances together. Spell check has taken care of the spelling thing (mostly).

You're clearly uneducated rather than dyslexic

I get mild occasions where my brain works faster than my mouth, resulting in my words tripping over each other. I combat it by staying calm, and over-pronouncing things if I am in a state of panic. I can sometimes pull it off, but not always. I don't see it as a problem, but merely one of those life's barriers that are there to test us :)

With typing/writing, I'm crap with words like 'minimum', 'accurate', 'license', 'background', and a string of other words.. I can type them a thousand times, and I still have to pause to think really hard.. Again, I'm sure millions of folk are the same.

Dude, you probably don't mean to, but the whole I can't be arsed attitude really makes you come accross as someone who can't be bothered to learn, rather than someone who has learning problems.

You've already stated that you couldn't be bothered with extra tution, and didn't want to be labeled a thicko.

Not meaning to sound like some kinda of a cunt, althought I probably will, but are you looking for a reason or an excuse?

I don't usually have rouble spelling, apart from the ie words.

My main problem is street maps, I'm absolutely crap at them.
I can read all the names of the streets etc, but finding where I am and then corrolating my location to where I want to go is a real struggle. This was not good as my last job was a multi drop delivery driver around London. Oh the stress.

Is there such a thing as map dyslexia?

This sentence shows typical dyslexic tendences, the confusion of common words like now:immediately and know: understand, also the reversal of endings like apple become appel.

Dyspraxia is a condition similar to dyslexia where attention span and clumsiness are also affected.

Neither condition is necessarily a hurdle, many famous people have been diagnosed, for example Susan Hampshire the actress.
Various techniques can be used to try to help for example coloured sheets to place over the page you are reading so that your focus is helped and the words don't jump around.

It is worth finding out because there is lots of help out there and whether or not you are dyslexic or bad at spelling don't let them tell you that you are unintelligent I think I'm right in saying IQ's of dyslexia sufferers tend to be high anyway. Some peoples brains are wired for words others for more practical things.
GOOD LUCK.

What also confuses people is the constant use of American style English spellings, and spellcheck checks for words that exist and not the context so it isn't very helpful for dyslexics.

I'm not dyslexic in the traditional sense as i only have trouble with numbers. In my head I can do pretty much anything mathmatical but getting the numbers into my head or out of my head causes problems.

I have to get people to repeat stuff like my C/Card numbers and telephone numbers back to me, all the time.

The best one is when I read the expiry date wrong and people say, your card is out of date! every Fucking time!

:D

I feel sorry for my cousin, he's disprastic (sp?). The words in his head get jumbled. He can look at a chair and call it an ocean liner. Its as if his wires are crossed in his head.He is an amazing musician!

Where as I'm shite!
