When Mr 7's classroom teacher mentioned they thought it might be Dyslexia. I was actually relieved, scared and relieved. Being a primary teacher I strongly suspected something was just not right but I hadn't quit put my finger on it yet. He was achieving, actually over achieving, in every area but struggling with reading.
- eye movements were unskilled
- he had a reduced ability to team two eyes together to sustain focus for a prolonged period of time on a near reading task.
- reduced ability to team two eyes together to allow simultaneous and comfortable viewing of an object and showed signs of under converging.
And once you start reading you will be amazed at the number of incredibly successful people who were and are Dyslexic
