Can you have varying degrees of Dyslexia?
Oh yes, that is all Dyslexia really is: a variety of different
ways to cope with disorientation. There are no two Dyslexics who
display the same degree nor the same symptoms. Some Dyslexics are only
showing the positive aspect of it and hardly any literacy or numeracy
difficulties – and would never even receive a Dyslexic ‘title’. They
may not love to read and when reading, just leave out the little
‘boring’ words (which is a sign of Dyslexia, as they are having
difficulty comprehending abstract words, that don’t bring up an
image). However, being as intelligent as most of them are, they still
get the zest of the text and find coping strategies to cover up any
difficulties. Others distract from a varying lack of understanding by
becoming the class clown, the bully, the daydreamer, the
chatterbox…anything really helps them better than a feeling of
helplessness, of not being in control.
