Dyslexic Achiever

"I, myself, was always recognized . . . as the "slow one" in the family. It was quite true, and I knew it and accepted it. Writing and spelling were always terribly difficult for me. My letters were without originality. I was . . . an extraordinarily bad speller and have remained so until this day."

Agatha Christie
(Novelist)

What is the diagnosis?

A child suspected of having learning difficulties must have a complete evaluation by a qualified professional. Before that school counselor, if available, should be requested to do informal assessment to guide the parents properly. Proper diagnosis is essential for seeking appropriate and timely intervention.
