help to spell and know the word is the correct one

my initial thinking on how to spell a certain word?

this addition information is so useful in checking the meaning

what have i written?

being at school,

everyone possibly has a story at school as to how and why their dyslexia or similar disability affecting schooling and mine is from writing down homework at the end of the lesson

so this meant me trying to write down what the teacher said at the end of the lesson, and then me reading my own hand writing of lots of badly written English which was not legible by anyone including me :-(

Spell checkers don't say if the usage of the word is wrong

So many times I write a word not realising have done that, so I either Google the word to check actual meaning or use my favourite dinosaur in Word (thesaurus ๐Ÿ˜)

What my brain thinks is correct


How the word is actually spelt

Checking spelling 

It possibly sounds really easy in the digital world we live to spell correctly, but as a dyslexic there are a few things to understand 

1. You need to know how to start a word in order to spell it (will explain that better another day๐Ÿ˜)

2. Spell check will not say if the wrong word has been used in the sentence, but it's spelt correctly

Just to say Google search it the best way to find out how to spell a word, also if suggests as you type, wish I had that while at school 
"It's not all bad"

It's going to be ok, we should really say this more often, because it usually is๐Ÿ˜Š Once we think or know we have disability (which dyslexia is classed as in the uk) it can seem like you are pigeonholed that is the future is known!!!

We it is not no one knows the future we can intelligently predict some of it but not for certain so, what you do can make a difference always remember that
How do you know? I am old enough to remember a time when dyslexia did not have a name to be honest no one really knew or even thought to ask

How would or could it have helped?

Think of it like an illness, if you know what it is you can treat it? Yep sounds too simple but it's so useful to know, I do wonder how different the world for me would have been๐Ÿค”
