My daughter is going into the first grade in September and as a happy well-rounded girl. Burien kindergarten she seem to be doing great in all areas. When working with her at home writing and reading I started noticing small uncertainties and assumed they were normal for her age learning. Halfway through the year she started complaining the words being blurry, getting headaches, not being able to see the board at school. I took her immediately to the eye doctor and had a small near side and was prescribed glasses. My daughter put them on thinking they would solve the problem but they didn't. At this point she stopped complaining about the things that we're going on and I think in a way I let her down because she feel different and doesn't know how to talk about it. The biggest things that I've noticed are her writing from the end of the page to the front of the page, mixes up B's and D's/ other letters, writes the letter backwards, the lines are blurry, her words start off small to big in size, she does not like reading at home, her attention span it's very short, she spells out words how they sound like "was she writes wuz"I know she is still young and I might be overthinking things but feel she has the signs of dyslexia. Resources and finances are very limited for me and scared of what my poor daughter must be going through. I want to of course do whatever is in my power. Being a single mother trying to work and take care of my daughter leaves me very limited time to focus on understanding and learning how to teach my daughter about something I don't even know about. Thanks for taking the time to read this I've never done a chat group before.I am open to hearing what others might say to this thank you Annie
