how old were they when you figured out they were? did you figure it out, or did a teacher at school?? what were their signs? is dyslexia genetic?? i "googled" this stuff, but i was kind of hoping for real people and their experiances with it. i dont know for sure if my daughter is, but, i kinda think she might be. and i just dont know what to do, or how to help, or anything. any info would be greatly appreciated :)
My son is dyslexic and I figured it out the summer between 2nd and 3rd grade. It took until the end of 3rd to get him tested properly and placed in special services. The school doesn't use dyslexic, they use Learning Disability.
My son was having trouble and I just thought it was him being the class clown. Then in that summer, I was working hard with him and he would forget words if he didn't read them EVERY day. We really got frustrated that summer and I knew something wasn't right!
