ADHD and Dyslexia

One of the symptoms of ADHD is Dyslexia.  Because your mind can’t focus on just one thing it will try to short cut it by putting in words that aren’t written or see different letters.  One of the variations is called Dysgraphia which is issues with putting thoughts in writing.  I remember when I had to write something for school I would stare at the page or screen for a long trying to put something down.  Word processors and computers with grammar and spell check has helped.  Writing down notes from someone speaking I couldn’t do because it wouldn’t be able to listen and write at the same time.  Part of the reason I went into I.T. is so I wouldn’t have to write long reports.  I would also try to avoid putting myself in positions of more responsibility for the same reason.
