Ive known Ive had Dyslexia for years but last week they told me I also had Dyspraxia as well. They said it makes you really clumsily. The test for Dyspraxia is this.
Walk in a straight line with your arms out without wobbling.
Sounds simple enough doesn't it?
As I stood up from the desk I kicked the table. Oops. I pushed the door to, removed my bag and jacket and then promptly tripped over the doorstop and landed flat on my face. (Does anyone watch Miranda? It was a Miranda fall. Such fun!) The examiner was doing her best to hold back a smile. I cant blame her, it was kinda funny.
This week they told me Im getting free soft wear to put on a new laptop I might be getting. I have a tutor I can see one hour a week and I have extra time with essays and library book loans. I am also given a disable students allowance (Were told the exact amount closer to the time)
I think a few Talkbackers or relative of Talkbackers have Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. I have the support in Uni but what about when I leave. I assume i can keep the softwear but I'm slightly worried about working in the real world. How do you get by?
