Don't write much as I'm dyslexic

Yey finally complete my 10days. Thanks for all the info you have provided me so far sofi and all pioneers.:hugs::heart: There is some really useful info. Waiting now for my small suprise. (very exited) if you don’t see me posting or commenting much it’s coz I find it hard to write sentences I’m OK saying things it’s just putting it down on paper (text) an If I did you would not understand a word I say sorry :pensive: I hate having dyslexia. I’m starting a group in a fortnight to help with it so hopefully you’ll see lots from me in the coming months.
Had a friend help me word this

Hi :wave:

Living with dyslexia is really difficult. Hopefully you can find some help in with the group you are joining.

Have you tried using speech to text?
On my phone it’s a little microphone symbol on the keyboard. It doesn’t like my accent sometimes so I find I have to speak more slowly but it helps me most of the time. Just need to get over that awkwardness of talking to your phone :joy:

There are definitely methods to help you manage your dyslexia. Mine isn’t gone but I push myself each day to try and improve my control over it and find ways to work around it.

Wishing you all the best with it.

Thanks for this comment, yes it is stressful. Really gets Me frustrated and feel down, I’m brilliant at reading and my spellings not to bad. it’s jus writing things down it makes no sense tbh! I only heard about the app you’ve mentioned a couple of weeks ago. But for some reason it does not work. It seems to be updating constantly. It was doing my head in wasting battery and not completing the update. I think it would really help as I have to call my mum if I need to send a message or email, then have to copy and paste (so annoying) so if you know of any other app that you think would help please send me the name paid or free :blush: thanks once again

Yea it really can get you down and feel like you can’t keep up with other people. You feel like there is something wrong with you. Like you’re stupid…

BUT you’re not, there isn’t anything wrong with you at all. Your brain just works differently. You might not be good with getting words down but people with dyslexia have other things going for them.

I went through my whole school years being told I was dumb and lazy by teachers and peers.
It wasn’t untill I was 18 when I was diagnosed with dyslexia that I found out I’m just built different.

I’ve read reports that state people with dyslexia have better mechanical reasoning, can make 3d mental images in their heads, can solve problems easier, can solve puzzles without problems or can see patterns clearly.

I spent years thinking everyone could picture a fully working 3d engine in their head and move it about but I was told that not many people see the world like that.

If you have an android phone then you might already have Gboard. If not then see if you can download it.


When you have gboard you can set background to make it easier to read the board, change the way the buttons look and that microphone will turn your speech to text. I use it on all my devices to help me.

Hopefully that’s not too much of a wall of text and helps you a little.

Hi I got dyslexia.
I make mistakes and if I see them I change them if not :person_shrugging::person_shrugging: no one here in the tree house will judge us. So feel free to post. I’m from Holland originally and my Dutch spelling is even worse now as I don’t often use it. But I find the more I write the easier it goes. And sometimes someone answers back and I see I wrote a word wrong . I think oh that’s how it’s spelled​:person_shrugging::person_shrugging: and I try to remember for the next time :hugs::hugs::hugs:
