"What Makes Me Different" - By Kate, a 3rd Grader with Dyslexia
Categories: Disability Type, Learning Disabilities, Parenting, Uncategorized
Kate, a Learning Ally member, recently sent us a copy of a paper she wrote for school.
Kate’s 3rd grade teacher asked the kids to write a paragraph on what makes them different. We think her response is simply perfect!
Read it below:
"Something that makes me different is that I'm dyslexic. Having dyslexia means that you have a little more trouble with reading and spelling. Having dyslexia does not mean a bad thing; it means that you are special and unique. It also means that I have to do is work harder at school, but I know that working hard now will help me later in life. Dyslexia makes me different."
