Is my daughter dyslexic?
I have never used this method of speaking to someone before, and I am assuming that it is Hannah the educational psychologist that I am communicating with. My daughter is 8, reading has always been a chore, Im not sure she likes it, one of the reasons is that we are always correcting her on nearly every sentence, she will swap words like 'the' with 'she or he' or other random small words, and she will miss words out and make words plural, completely altering the meaning of the sentence. I wondered if she may be dyslexic, I have looked at people on utube who are dyslexic and my daughter only perhaps ticks one or two of the boxes for dyslexia, so came to the conclusion that she was not. I do not think her concentration is great either. Im thinking this is probably a devolopemental thing?, She will also miss out 'signs = + etc' in maths and get the answer completely wrong. I feel the school just tell you what you want to hear and am not sure how to address this issue, I feel it may be simple if I just spoke to the right person.
