Just been diagnosed as dyslexic

Post by dexter1007 » Tue Dec 17, 2019 9:21 am

Hi, I have just had my report back, it’s 22 pages of been told I’m below average at everything. I now feel really dumb and stupid. Is it supposed to be like this?

Dexter -- check this page -- 8 Basic Abilities of Dyslexia - https://www.dyslexia.com/about-dyslexia ... abilities/

Do you relate to the abilities listed?

The problem with diagnostic testing is that it is tied to looking for weaknesses - so you don't get a report back on strengths that aren't tested.

Another useful exercise might be to go to this page - https://www.testdyslexia.com/ - and fill out the survey, paying particular attention to the options under Question 6. You really don't have to do the rest of the survey unless you want to -- but it gives you a sense of what questions are asked when there is a focus on strengths as well as weaknesses.
