  • We are SO Proud of you Connor!
  • After my diagnosis, I was relieved to find out that I can learn. My brain works differently, and it may take me longer to learn certain concepts but I am NOT stupid. In fact, psychology’s definition of dyslexia is proof. Psychology Today says “Dyslexia is a neurological condition, not a mental disorder. It affects learning ability in people of normal and above-average intelligence. It is a language-based disability that causes difficulties with word recognition, spelling, and comprehension.”
  • Teachers = Friends
  • For me, school and learning means a tremendous amount of effort. However, being dyslexic has taught me that hard work pays off. My honor roll grades are evidence.
  • I have learned much about myself along the way. I now know that I need to ask questions when I do not understand and embarrassment should not be a factor. Teachers are my friends. Advocating for myself and time management are two areas I will continue to work on, maybe for the rest of my life. A life consisting of three phases: the early years of confusion and frustration, understanding my diagnosis, and celebrating a bright future with dyslexia.
