Dyslexia and dysgraphia: Struggles with reading and writing

from The Jewish Press

Shifi and Shana were neighbors and their mothers had been getting together before they could even roll over. Now that the girls were in second grade, they did their homework together. "Shifi, your 'd' is so funny! It looks like a banana," Shana giggled. "It's not a 'd,' Shana, it's a 'b.' And I can't help it. It just comes out like that!" Shifi responded. "What do you mean it's a 'b?' It looks like a 'd' to me, but Morah says I keep making those mistakes anyway," Shana said, blushing. "Yes, but she keeps telling me I need to write neatly. I'm trying, but I can't do it. Maybe we can trade. I'll read for you. You write for me!" Shifi said eagerly, handing over her pencil. While Shifi and Shana could be two girls who are experiencing regular struggles with reading and writing, if these issues continue, it is possible that they each suffer from a different learning disability: dyslexia or dysgraphia. more
