Luke misses the joke and struggles with sarcasm because he doesn’t understand the words and he misses the social cues.
Dave gets nervous about texting because he misspells words and uses “shortcuts” others don’t understand.
The pace of communicating is at warp speed, especially with girls, and Sydney just can’t find the right words fast enough to keep up. Memory is dependent on language skills.
Chris doesn’t remember what others have said or what he has promised and his friends get mad. It is very confusing and he gives up.
Having relationships and dyslexia is just too much work. Between the social demands and the academic load, kids with dyslexia experience much more stress than others.
I wrote a blog post titled It's Not a Reading Problem, It's a Brain Thing that's worth a look. If you suspect your child is experiencing dyslexia, please learn what you can and have them evaluated for their struggles. You can see that dyslexia has the potential to significantly impact your child's entire life. Please take it seriously and take it seriously NOW!
