I choses Dyslexia because have a mild case of dyslexia. This topic affects me because I have a harder time understanding thing than my peers. Somethings that I have previously known about Dyslexia is that it is a learning disability that makes you process reading, writing and math. This connects to me because I have dyslexia also because I have learned about left and right side of the brain. This is important to me because i’ve had this disability without knowing for almost for all my life and I want to know as much as I can about it. I think that this is important for everyone to know so that people can understand how dyslexic people learn and feel. I think that this would affect teenagers with dyslexia because there peers and their expectations will rise.
I learned about the history of Dyslexia. My opinion about Dyslexia is that there should be more awareness about it because you or some close to you could have it without it. Something that I found interesting is that there are three types of Dyslexia. This has changed the way I think because if I met someone dyslexic I could relate to them. Some misunderstanding that could happen to people with dyslexia is that they can be called “dumb” but it it’s not a lack of knowledge but displaying the knowledge. The problems with dyslexia is that they learn differently than most of the class or they can be rejected from peers or family members. There is no getting rid of dyslexia but there are thing that can be done to help the person learn just as quick as his/her peers something that can also help is to be very accepting and understanding. This influence me in social part of wellness because people need to learn how interact with people that learn, look or think differently without discriminating them.
