What Dyslexia Isn’t
Diana Black Kennedy

I found this article very interesting. I myself am a dyslexic teenage girl on her first year of high school and life is no picnic. The few people who do know of my dyslexia are always asking me questions that seems idiotic to me, but must have been important to them. People just don’t know about dyslexia and disabilities like it. Take the flipping words misconception as an example. I am constantly getting asked if I see words flipped around and upside down. I mean of course not…but when I state that I don’t then everyone around me think I am lying about my dyslexia to get out of work or to use a calculator in math. I believe it should be mandatory to learn about learn disabilities in health class or science, so people can learn and understand them better.
