Dyslexia and School

I like that question—and I do pose it a lot to my older clients or former clients. It’s interesting to me that there seems to be very little recollection. Maybe it is human nature to zoom out of traumatic experiences and by not getting consciously affected it seems to diminish the pain and anxiety. However, it does come at a high cost, often a tendency to get out of challenging life situations in general. Some children tell me that all they hear after a while of listening to a teacher, especially a “wordy” one, is “blah-blah-blah.” Another common response is that certain basic knowledge was either never taught to them (grammar being one area) or without them being present. These gaps add to the confusion in later years.
