"As many as 15% of Americans may be dyslexic, yet this
learning disability continues isolate and frustrate those who struggle with it.
Consequently, DML shares his personal experiences in Dyslexia My
Life in an effort to overcome the ignorance and prejudice of friends, family and
society. We shares not only his history, but also his creative coping
skills that allowed him to go on to succeed in life, including earning an MBA in
describes in heart rendering terms the night a parent-teacher conference changed
the lives of his family forever. Although his teaches recommended
institutionalization, His mother refused to comply. His mother's tears
and his father's rejections still haunt his memory. Later a more accurate
diagnoses was made of dyslexia, which affects speech, reading, time perception,
and can slow learning ins some subjects. As a dyslexic myself, I found
he account fascinating and I confess to learning a lot about myself
while reading his narrative. I had never understood the two types of dyslexia,
and how to discern between them. In addition, I couldn't help but chuckle in
sympathy while reading his difficulty with standardized tests. I could easily
empathize with the blows to the self-esteem as well as the feelings of stupidity
and ineptitude. Moreover, with a Master's degree in English, I am also
encouraged to find someone else who did reach his dreams despite the challenges
meted out by this learning disability. A must read for those with dyslexia as
well as parents, educators and others touched by this learning disability.
Dyslexia My Life comes very highly recommended."
Disappointment to a noble soul is
what cold water is to burning metal; it strengthens, tempers, intensifies, but
never destroys It." from the book Dyslexia My LIfe.
