Re: Still Star-Crossed

Did they not allow extra time for certified dyslexics?

They didn't discover we were until we were adults. It's not as easy to diagnose as you may think, and there's a spectrum. Also this was in the 1970s and 1980s, and they only caught people who fit a certain model.

When I hit law school, I did get certified or rather assessed by trained psychologists who determined that it was visual and audio coordination disorder, they hate the term dyslexia, and was given additional time for the Bar Exam.
