Motivation

How do you motivate yourself to keep going in school?

– “I love what I do and have plans for the future. I have the best (also dyslexic) teacher I could ever want! I have good frienss in school, and they are on my side, even though only a few know about my dyslexia. I just love doing music all the time.”

– “Supportive teachers,do what i can fight for the accommodations that i need. Dont gove up on thay fight.”

– “I’m becoming a veterinarian because it’s my life’s calling.”

– “I know I’m very intelligent and honestly I just really enjoy doing well. I stay motivated because of my desire to succeed.”

– “It wasn’t too hard, I just had to find different ways to read”

– “When I was younger I didn’t care about school at all I thought I was stupid and could never get better. But in grade 7 I somehow magically pulled off getting straight A’s on my first report card or the year and it was then I realized I could be smart if I really gave it my all. Since that day I have pushed myself harder and harder to keep up with everyone eles and get good grades. I do it because I refuse to ever feel like I’m stupid again. That is my motivation. And honeslty it’s really paid off I applied to the University this year and I’m on my way to actually going into the education program so I can become a teacher.”

– “I have supportive friends and teachers and I think about going to uni and do what I want with my life.”

– “Well my story is a tad complicated with schooling but I still manage to get a diploma in something, it was a struggle and alot of hard work but if u can get lucky with good understanding teachers who willing to be supportive it really helps. Make a step by step goal system look forward to the end of the school tunnel”

– “Not at school but at work. My family motivate me”

 

School

How does dyslexia affect you in everyday life and school?

Thses are answers for dyslexic themself.

– “I’m studying music in college in Finland at the moment. In many situations I feel my imagination is alot better than my peers, and I think of good ways to do things people are struggling with. (Mostly having to do with music.) Thinking outside the box, like everyone says 😀 I feel very stressed about my slow reading pace, and feel sick when I hear we have to read an article on some courses in school. I get the same feeling right before starting a group assignment, and knowing who are in my group for some reason.”

– “Tests were difficult i lnew the answers but when i saw the test on white paper my brain would stall getting what i knew on the paper was difficult. I was never able to finish tests in time aloted the noise of the early finishers drove me crazy.n broke my concentration”

– “Increases study time, decreases grades”

– “It makes reading quite challenging. I go to the number one public university in the world and number 4 over all so it it quite difficult. My major requires a LOT of reading. However, I have the kurzweil program on my computer which has changed everything. Honestly, without that, I would be struggling so much more.”

– “It’s hard to read but I’m able to function fine, I’m used to it”

– “Dyslexia affects every part of my life because it’s part of who I am. In terms of school though I’m much slower at tests and doing assignments, sometimes it’s hard to keep up.”

– “Not as much as expected. I make small mistakes with reading and spelling but they are minor enough to easily be looked over. Sometime at school I receive work earlier to all myself to read through it and process it better.”

– “Paperwork is dreaded and communicating with others can be rather challenging, it’s still frustrating to do spelling errors a lot, and my memories rarely memorize what I want them too”

– “Confidence”

– “A lot fallowing instructions at work”
