In the latest round of theproposedrevisions fortheDiagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) by the AmericanPsychiatricAssociation, "Learning Disorder has been changed toSpecificLearning Disorder and the previous types of Learning Disorder (Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, and Disorder of Written Expression) no longer are being recommended." (See May 2012 issue of the eXaminer for further information.)
Dyslexia is a real disorder with a clear definition. It impacts a persons ability to be a productive contributing citizen and earn a living! It is a severe disability in many cases.
My son has dyslexia and it is becoming really hard to get the services he needs in school in order to have good progress toward his high school diploma. It hurts his progress when schools have to find an alternate method that, most of the time, do not work or do not work well. Its a disability. It might not be yours but it's theirs and they need help.
Pass this bill our children need this service.
