I sit here and ask many thousands of people that struggle with dyslexia ... Do you feel silenced. Unheard and always left behind in school no matter how hard you push. You lack in all areas of learning. You aren’t alone.
I’m in my last year of high school in a program for learning disabilities. It sounds like a miracle school. A school for kids who need EXTRA support. No matter what the world has always views us less then other brains. My school is within a school. Which means the government doesn’t give us money to fund for OUR own building. 65 of us have learning disabilities from dyslexia to autism. We are stuck in a hallway that looks different from the rest of the other school. We aren’t ashamed but lack help. Our foot prints are covered by the other school success. My teachers want to support us but they don’t have the power. It’s up to us. I’m just tired of trying and getting no where in school. I will work till my fingers bleed but my mark will never be a reward. I will move on subject after subject and still not understanding what I just learned. So I’m stuck because I hate getting help. I have had to depend on so much resources to get a passing grade when I have the potential beyond a straight A student.
My point is does the school system ever learn that students are grader then a graduation certificate?
I’m scared I won’t get there.
