    It's fairly easy to read but you can't read as quickly. Better to talk right :P

    people with dyslexia naturally mess words up. Interesting though how we have the ability to see what they see but still understand yet they cant.
    They say if you play a Microsoft CD backwards, you hear satanic messages. Thats nothing, cause if you play it forwards, it installs Windows.

    There's more to dyslexia than just mixing up letters - dyslexics have trouble decoding words. My father retired a few years ago after a career as a mechanical engineer. He designed high performance hydraulics and has a mind boggling ability to read drawings, but has had to work hard in retirement to develop an ability to read a simple novel.

    I am mildly dyslexic, not to bad. I have to make sure to carefully proof read. I tell you, computers have made my life much easier. Most of my troubles are with numbers. Computers do not help too much here and I often mess up dialing phones. I have to be careful and we learned a long time ago that I can not balance the checkbook, Ouch! It's kind of odd because I am very good at math. I have to do it in my head though. If I go to paper and do the work I am in trouble because I mess up the numbers. In my head there are no actual numbers. I also can not do math by the standard methods. I drove the teachers nuts because I was always right with my answers, but it was done in my head with no work to show. My youngest is the same way. He was doing times tables by the time he was three or four, in his head, without any instructions. He, however, also is somewhat dyslexic and has trouble doing the work. It frustrates me. The teachers are so upset because he has trouble with the work. His answers are right. I do math faster then most can push the numbers into a calculator and get the answer. It was great with accident investigations. So can he, but you have to show the work. It slows me considerably if I have to figure math the standard ways. Him to. They tell me how gifted he is in math, but he does not do well on the timed test (actually the Graves has effect his muscle control and writing is difficult so that has some to do with it). I never really understood why math must be done the standard way. Ah well.

    Even though mine is mild, I often have to re-read. Sometimes I can read a sentence several times and I can not make sense of it. Mine is mild, I feel for those that have a sever case.

    I love read backwards and mirror image, that's fun.

    My psychology teacher gave us a hand out on that once. It's pretty cool.
