  1. I my self was also told I was dyslexic when I was in the first or second grade .Nothing was ever done tohelp me while going to school .I never seen an A+ or even a B during school .When I got older I attempted to get my GED at C.C.C in Oregon .Their they allowed me to listen to the testing on audio tape and received extra time to complete the test.The same test I got less then a passing grade the time before, when done this way with accommodation, I received an A+ .It was amazing the very first A+ and it wasn't til I went back to school as an adult that I was able to set aside my pride and shame that I was able to do so. This video opened my eyes to so many more options that I was unaware even existed. So thank you for your continued effort in fighting for our rights to equal opportunities as the rest of the population.
