Hi my 18 year old son recently got a dyslexia diagnosis. This term has just started & he’s being asked to do a 4000 word essay (course is part coursework, part exam). He loves to learn & especially loves the discussion side of his chosen subjects but the writing is a big challenge. He struggled with speech to text software & has given up on that. We are thinking now that the exam based studying might not be for him due to the large amount of writing involved. He is homeschooled so gets a 121 tutor still at present. He’s really struggling to get his head round his conditions & his confidence & emotional health has taken a sharp turn for the worst. Any tips around autism with dyslexia in terms of schooling, employment, health and esteem etc ?
