A Note From a Dyslexic Child

My son has dyslexia. He was diagnosed as a first grader. At the time of me writing this blog post, he is 19 and in college.

Here is a journal assignment he wrote back in 2011, the fourth quarter of his seventh grade.

My son has an above average IQ. He took and passed honors calculus.

As he once told me, “Mom, I’m not stupid, I just have dyslexia.”

Thanks for reading.

One book that really helped my understand Dyslexia is:

The Secret Life of the Dyslexic Child: How She thinks. How He Feels. How They Can Succeed 


A paperback edition of the widely praised book that gives parents for the first time ever a true understanding of what their child with a learning disorder is thinking and feeling.

Winner of the 2002 Margot Marek Annual Book Award for the most outstanding book written for parents or children on the subject of dyslexia or related learning disabilities. (International Dyslexia Association- New York branch)
