INTRODUCTION OF THE BOOK
Dyslexia .Live it to know it
They had watched as I built a successful business for myself. They had heard the quick wit. But they really didnt know me at all. Yes i guess I was all of those things on the surface, but I had got really good at covering up my handicap, the handycap that had on one hand held me back yet on the other pushed me hard to achieve my goals.
THE HANDYCAP. THE SECRET IS "DYSLEXIA"
I have always believed that we are all put on this planet for a reason, I cant tell you why I should think this way but it just seems the way things are to me, but for a hell of a long time I couldnt figure out what my reason was!
Then I taught myself how to read and write after years in the darkness and frustration of dyslexia!
I found answers to questions that had held me back for years, had I found my reason? May be just may be this could be the reason!
I might not be able to change the worlds misunderstanding of dyslexia but if I can shine a little light on how it is for the sufferers then the problems might be a little easier remedied.
So I have to tell the teachers there is a way!
I have to show them all how it feels for that bright kid who just doesnt read or write so well!
I have to show them ALL There is a way!
I have to show them that the kid with dyslexia could be better understood!
I have got to try and some how banish the stigma of dyslexia!
I have got to help that kid that just doesnt understand!
I have to tell the mother of that dyslexic kid there is hope!
I have got to somehow stop that unintentional abuse!
FOR THAT KID, WHO WAS ME, I WRITE THIS BOOK!
