Dyslexia: My Life One Man's Story of his Life with a Learning Disability
An Autobiography By DML
As reviewed by Ellen Tanner Marsh, a New York Times
What does it mean to grow up with a disability that no one seems to understand?
It meant grappling with shame and fear and his
father's stony disapproval. Dyslexia, a neurological
learning disability where individuals experience problems recognizing words (the
letters are often transposed) so that reading is difficult, if not impossible.
More often than not, dyslexics are erroneously considered slow or stupid.
With honesty and grace, he tells the story of his own battle with
dyslexia and the many challenges he had to overcome. Growing up in the 1960s, he
faced uncaring teachers and worried, angry parents who didn't know any better in
dealing with an affliction that we now know affects one in five children. But
he never gave up, persevering against considerable odds to attend
college, get a job and find his niche.
This extraordinary memoir tells his courageous story and also provides helpful
tips for managing dyslexia and ultimately succeeding in life. Overcoming a
disability doesn't mean curing it, but as he writes, "other strengths

"As many as 15% of Americans may be
dyslexic, yet this learning disability continues isolate and frustrate those who
struggle with it. Consequently, He shares his personal experiences
in Dyslexia My Life in an effort to overcome the ignorance and prejudice of
friends, family and society. He 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 business. He was diagnosed as mentally retarded in
elementary school. He 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 His 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."
