ABBY: “At first I didn’t feel confident about bringing out my coloured overlay in class [a learning tool I need to help me with my dyslexia]. But nobody mentioned the fact that I was using it and lots of other pupils were using them too. We now have every colour of overlay available in each department across the school.”
WHAT DID ABBY FIND DIFFICULT ABOUT BEING IN CLASS?
ABBY: “I was very worried about people asking me to read aloud in class. In fact people don’t ask me to do this very often.”
IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE THAT WORRIED ABBY ABOUT SCHOOL?
ABBY:“I was also worried about the work that we would have to do. I was afraid that the tasks set might be too hard for me. In fact, the teachers are happy to work with you if you find tasks difficult or give you different sheets to do to help you learn best.”
Thanks to Abby for sharing her experience.
In summary, here are some takeaways from what she said:
➜You don’t need to feel self conscious about your dyslexia
➜It’s ok if you need to bring special equipment to classes to help you learn
➜You can tell the teacher if reading aloud in front of the class is hard for you
➜If your school work worries you, then try talking to your teachers
