Let’s start with explaining what dyslexia is. Dyslexia is a disorder that makes it difficult to learn to read and interpret letters and words. I am dyslexic, but I’ve learned to deal with it. I think these tips might help you, too. Here are some ways to handle it:

  •  Practice reading a lot.
  •  Gain your reading and writing independence.
  •  Keep up to date with new technologies. Know what is out there that can help you.
  •  Know the right time divulge your dyslexia to others.
  •  Regain school confidence by talking to your teachers and getting help.
  • Learn your strengths. 
  • Never ever give up.

Now you know ways to deal with and help people with dyslexia.
