After two years of evenings and weekends, I came away with the certificate and the knowledge that I had dyslexia, though I didn't dare admit that at the time. Barely out of teaching college, I feared for my job if anyone learned about this, and I kept this knowledge secret for years.
The regret I hear most often from parents is they didn't come for tutoring help sooner, and delayed having their child assessed.
I no longer hide my dyslexia and speak very openly about it as a way to encourage others, especially my students.
