"Dyslexia is just a long word for thick!". Dyslexia has long been a misunderstood learning disability. As highlighted in this "BBC Dyslexia Article". In schools and the workplace, some people still hold negative views about dyslexia. Some doubt the existence of dyslexia. Doubt the capabilities of dyslexic people. I myself was bullied, humiliated by teachers at school. For what I recognise now as dyslexic traits. Would any other child with a disability have been treated this way, I wonder.
When I got a free computer at university, due to being dyslexic. I got comments, about how dyslexia is not a proper disability. Some other students were unhappy I was getting special treatment. So is dyslexia a learning disability? Dyslexia is a learning difficulty, does this make it disability?
