I just wondered if anyone has a child who has an older reading age but has problems with organising their school bag and very dizzy/messy jumping from one thing to the next, short term memory and time management difficulties?
I have been to parents evening for my 11 year old daughter and the teacher said they would definately get them tested for dyslexia as I found out a year and a half ago I have dyslexia.
The primary school said she was gifted and talented and there is no way she would have dyslexia with such good english. She has always not sat still in school and been tested for hearing difficulties. She still struggles with telling the time and some times tables. She takes a while organising herself and frequently forgets planner, books, pens, etc. She takes a while organises herself and one teacher said if she doesn't keep checking on her every few mins she will go down the wrong track and answer what she thinks.
