My name is Joshua Bell and I have severe Dyslexia.

Even though I was diagnosed with Dyslexia when I was 8 years old

I still left full time education not able to read better than a six year old.

In primary school the extra help amounted to an extra half hour a day

reading which didn't help the reasons behind my Dyslexia.

On starting Secondary School I was put in a specially formed class

for other students with issues similar to mine. Although this was intended

to actually help us, what happened was we were taught separately from

everyone else and became split from the rest of the school. The teachers

also did not have specific training for our needs and as such we were set

work to do and left to get on with it. This led to extremely poor exam results

and a limited choice for further education.

I am far from stupid and want to achieve things in my life, but not being able to

read has held me back all my life.

Ever since I have become an Adult I have struggled to find the help I need as

all help for Dyslexia seems to geared at children. if I could read I could then

read and learn , retake my exams and get some qualifications.

So my petition is for better facilities for Adults with Dyslexia such as regular

reading classes with qualified Tutors who under stand the problems with face.

I am sure that there are many people out there who struggle with this problem

which is both frustrating and debilitating .
