Growing Up With my Unknown Dyslexia

Looking at my life over the last decade, I can easily say I am both proud and  shocked of what my life is like now. Honestly, looking back to when I was about 10, becoming an writer even a business owner didn’t cross my mind as being in my future one day. You see, around this time myself, my teachers and my family realised that I had vision difficulties. This was a shock mainly to me because up until then I thought I was doing fine with my education and was loving school. Despite this, I do remember struggling with reading books in class and at home and slowly struggling to read them as they got harder. As I didn’t know what was actually going on I started to find ways to mask that I was struggling to read, let’s say I definitely took advantage of being nonverbal.

However, on the other side of this the reason I decided to hide my problems was because i thought that I was going to be immediately placed into the support unit, especially because I was severely disabled.

It was after we sorted out a way I could operate a computer independently that we realised that I was struggling with my spelling and reading. Amazingly, this was the start of my life now because from here I had an incredible team of teachers, teacher aids and my family all rallying together to ensure that I found ways to adapt to my reading difficulties.

It was as I matured and had multiple discussions with friends who had similar problems with reading as me that I realised that I must have something similar to dyslexia that is affected by my Cerebral Palsy. So now thanks to finding ways to use technology to assist me with my vision and of course the incredible support around me I am now able to see my vision as a limitation rather than something to be hidden away.
