The dyslexia test for his daughter brought an unexpected personal challenge
Dyslexia Explored #25
Dyslexia in Adults is often found when your child is identified. John Hicks shares that his biggest challenge when he read his daughters assessment was what it threw up for him, memories from the past and certain behaviours in work that started to make sense.
In this story we touch on:
How being asked for a favour to read a bible passage out loud led to an unexpected breakdown.
How his daughter didn’t seem dyslexic enough for help
Getting an independent assessment
The report reads like it’s about John not just Jess
Finding a purpose in helping struggling teens and parents in school
The value of assistive technology.
Message to teenage self: Stand up for yourself
Message to parent self: Look at the Big Picture. Look beyond the behaviour.
