I’m just going to let everyone know now that I’m a dyslexic blogger. My writing is not perfect, but I don’t let that stop me.
You will find me adding extra e’s to the ends of words, don’t ask me why. I remember my mom asking me that while I was growing up and would always tell her because it makes it look better. I guess that is my same reason (today). If it doesn’t look right just add an e. I know you are asking yourself right now just hit spell check. Yes spell check is great, but when you have Dyslexia and words are spelled similarly I can’t distinguish the right one, and lets all face it the English language is not perfect. So you will find me…
· Using saw for was – I see it that way and if I’m in a hurry I won’t remember to revise it. Spell check won’t work for those because it is spelled right.
· Tough- should me spelled Tuff but it is not so I will spell things just how they sound to me.
· If there are to many similar letters in a word I can not distinguish between the two. Example (i and l), (s and z), (b and d), and (m and w).
· I can not remember for the life of me all the rules for spelling i before e except after c or is it e before i except after c anyway it all sounds the same to me.
· It takes me 3 days to write what it takes you a day. So I might not have the post most of you do.
My writing is not perfect, but I’m not going to let that stop me. I read a lot of your blogs and it inspires me to try and do the same. I write to try and improve my skill and not lose what I have learned over the years. So bear with me I’m dyslexic and a big part of why I’m a Preschool Teacher. I feel that if I would have been given the chance by my early year teachers that I could learn, I could have been so much more. Instead I heard “Don’t bother with her she can’t learn.”
