    I'm sorry but unless you have a large chunk of your brain missing you can correct a lot of things you habitually do. Any females reading this who do not wear glasses, even though they should... Know that you can correct your vision as you focus and strain. What makes you assume you can not teach yourself to perceptual correctly?

    Its easy to just give up or "own your dsylexia" . You know in the 80s dsylexia was considered people who reverse things they see. Now its a whole bunch of learning and conceptual malfunctions.. That they will label a four year old(someone who is still learning motor skills) as dsylexic if they spell a few words incorrectly. If they structure sentences wrong. Of course half of the damn America can be considered dyslexic under their ridiculous symptoms list. Most Americans still have strong descendant blood line of non-english / British origins.

    An their mind is articulated to align conceptual rationalizing into formidable methods that their descendant is. Such as, Mexicans can learn spanish very easy. Many white people can pick up french and german very easily. ALL BECAUSE we come from those cultures. An those cultures all articulate rationalizing in sentence differently.

    You should not be considered dyslexic, unless you flip your vision inverted/ mirrored opposite. I have not said that dsylexia is a myth, but they need to adjust their standard to it. Same with Autism as well. Did you also know, that in the 80s Autism was only considered to mute people or people with visible retardations? Now Autism is evenly a perceptual dysfunction not only of motor-skill dysfunctions.
