both my 9 and 14 have dyslexic trait s school informs me. my 14 year old is very bright but i have noriced despite been predicted high grades in test s he scores very low. he seem to struggle to express what he wants to say on paper . this will have big implications as he approach s GCSE S . is this common ? it appears like he simply can nt be bothered to put any effort in when doing written work and i am unsure if this is part of the trait or perhaps an age thing. oddly he is very good at math s , reading and spelling.
