Hello, Im 25 years old, a college grad, and I wondering if anyone with knowledge of LDs can help me.
My problem is with writing, for as long as can I remember I have "left" words out of whatever I write. I compose the sentence perfectly in my head but when it comes to writing I always leave words out of sentences. Growing up I was always told my mind worked faster than hands could write and that I should slow down (never worked), by the time reached college I started to think I had some form of LD but I never did anything about and I just plowed though my english/writing classes.
Im asking now because my problems with writing seem to have gotten worse because I write alot of emails at work and Im having to proofread each email 2-3 times before I send them out and some of them still have words missing.
If anyone has this problem or have any information please share.
I'm not sure what lasik does - but there are vision problems with the muscles in the eye, not the "picture taking" part (that most people think of when they think of vision problems). If your eyes don't move well together, or they don't track along the line well, that could be why you don't see that you are skipping words.
I'm really hoping the pencil trick works, though - it really helps some of my students. Fingers crossed here :-)
