I'm concerned my daughter may have dyslexia but that it won't be investigated by the school.
She is a bright, imaginative 6 year old, and kind to her 3 year old sister.
However, she does not seem happy at school and her teachers are often unhappy with her behaviour and levels of concentration in lessons.
My husband, her father, is dyslexic and wasn't checked or tested until he reached college at 16. He said he suffered miserably at primary and secondary with being held back at breaktimes in order for him to catch up with work he couldn't manage in class time. He was labelled a troublemaker and lazy, and he was left feeling he must be stupid.
I really don't want for this to happen to my daughter. So many on here seem to wish their dyslexia had been diagnosed so much earlier in their lives, so I just want to make sure I do all I can to help my daughter if she is suffering from dyslexia too.
I don't accept that she is a bad girl as they seem to imply at school. I think she struggles to meet their demands in the time allowed because she needs longer to process the information.
I realise I haven't gone into much detail, and she can read and write (although not great, but you could say it's early days as she's in Year 1).
Any comments? Thanks
