i struggled all the way though primary and secondary school i was a statemented student but the schools did not know what was my problems where i got put in the special need unit and was given twice weekly one to one lessons and support in some lessons i was given occupational therapy .but the schools still did not know what was wrong with me some day i just felt so stupid and i did fell down about it meany times.then i went to college i was sent to have a dyslexic assessment with in two weeks of starting .then i was diagnosed as servilely dyslexic with "associated conditions" what ever that means but one of them was dyspraxia. after this i just felt a great scenes of relief i actually had a little cry just because everything just made scenes to me then. then a few days later i went to visit my old secondary school and then i told my LSA and my one to one teacher i was dyslexic and then i asked them why couldn't they diagnose me there reply was we dont have the resources or the funds to do that . this just shows we all need to open our eyes up and fight for schools to get more resources and training to help them identify dyslexia in students before its too late.
