I was daignosed with dyslexia 5 years ago though work. I seemed to get everything wrong. I was there for 6 years. I have no idea what my report means aprt from being dsylexic and dsypraxic. I only saw the report becuase i phoned the company who did the asesment. My company tried to keep the report from me.
I have spent my whole life feeling stupid.
Six months ago i was made redundant and i have been going in to see my work coach. I asked about getting some help to cope with my dsylexia as my condifence is low. This is effecting me getting a job. But the job centre gave me a number for a private person as there is no dsylexia help anywhere near where i live. I can't afford to pay for help. The job centre will only pay when i am in paid work and that won't be for much.
Why is it that dsylexia and dsypraxia is recongiesd under the disability act but there is no help unless you can afford to pay a great deal of money. I strugle on a daily bases to achive and always worked harder to do things than my collegues had to. Just sending an email was hard and a much longer process.
i realy dont know what to do. Everyone is telling me to get a job but i just have no condifcene. It must show as well as i havent been offer anything yet.
Any advice on what i can do would be great. I would like to hear if others are haveing the same issues.
