Just a PSA about Dyslexia, since someone desided to correct my spelling on facebook.
I want to add that sometimes they can develop speech impairments. I don’t have dyslexia myself, but I have two brothers who do, one of which has a speech impairment because of his dyslexia. He’s gotten better through speech therapy, but he still won’t go and ask for things himself because of bullying people in authority have inflicted on him for his impairment.
My Dad has it and has also mentioned that for him he has trouble reading as he understands the words, but it isn’t registering.
So it’s as the OP says, not all dyslexic people are the same. I have 3 in my immediate family who are all different, and even many other family members on my father’s side.
If your friend has a type with a speech impairment, and they’re okay with you helping them, you may want to speak up for them. I know growing up I was the one who would say things for my brother as I served as his ‘translator’ when we were growing up.
But always make sure your help is welcome.
I’ve mastered the skill of feeling guilty for asking for anything

in 9th grade i was getting picked on in class and this girl was like “fuck you guys leave him alone” and called me over to her seat and I was like “thx lol” and she was like “I have something special to show you don’t tell the teacher” and I said “ok” and she pulled a guinea pig out of her purse
