We learned about this during the run of Happy Days in the 70s. He's been working for Dyslexia organizations for decades. Old news is so entertaining.

I think claiming you have dislexia is an easy way to get people to give you more credit for being a moron. Just like 'indigo' children or 'ADHD.' Some people are just smarter than others, no reason to make everyone feel equal if they're not.

"sorry sonny, you didn't do as well in school, it wasn't because you're not as smart as the kid who became a doctor, it was because you have a disorder."

Sure, I'll bet your hippy parents think you're in tune with feelings and emotions, and have a sort of 'sixth sense' about people that makes you super special. Give me a break. You're not dislexic, you're just like everyone else, you just want to put a term on yourself to make your achievements seem greater because you 'overcame' your 'illness' to get where you are.

You know, dyslexia has its good points:
I can easily read the kids a bed time story upside down so they can see the pictures without messing up any words.

I'm not saying that there is no such thing as Dyslexia but I do feel that it is a condition that children are labeled with too often. There are many "dyslexic" children who are actually just lazy, not too smart or suffer from some other condition. I was diagnosed with Dyslexia and even went to a school for Dyslexic children. In hindsight I think I was just extremely lazy and just didn't want to do any class work that I didn't find very interesting.

I actually did much better at the Dyslexic school only because there were about 6 students to each teacher. It's hard to sleep when there is a teacher constantly standing over you pestering you to get back to work. There were some kids there who genuinely had problems reading, others like me were obviously slackers.

sorry but some people like him (and myself) have disorders, we were tested as kids, some of us got help and guidance to help us overcome our issues or at least know how to control them.
