dyslexic-girl asks:

Why after 16 years of education have I only just been given a dyslexia test?

Hello, I am now 17 years of age

Since I can remember I have struggled in school, from when I first started in primary school to be precise. I remember the other school children saying "I don't want to work with her because she is stupid" I remember not being about to count up to 30 when I was six years of age! Which is pretty bad :( . I was so embarrassed. I have just started college and I have only just been asked whether I would like a dyslexia test, I said yes, and guess what I am dyslexic, but still I have a high IQ. So why is it I ask myself, did I not get the rite support, through-out my school life, meaning I could have got possible A-A* and succeeded in my dream career, to a vet. But no only smart people can do that! ? Why did my teachers and parents not notice or not care? I have technically left school with 3 GCSE'S because I wasn't given the support I needed. I'm still a child who struggles a lot, I feel like I need to be given back my education, from people who didn't, just, care really! . I wrote this on here, because really I just feel sad :(, Thank you
