My 9 year-old daughter was assessed by a psychologist to have ADHD and dysgraphia. She also tested gifted and talented. I am wondering – is it common for ADHD and dysgraphia to be confused with dyslexia? Is dyslexia often a missed diagnoses?
Here I am, still trying to figure out how to help my daughter. I wrote
question last year. She is in grade 4 this year. I posted this question when she was tested last year. Currently she is on 20 mg biphentin (still assessing whether this helps) and has some accommodations for the dysgraphia and ADHD.
She has been bringing home failing spelling tests and I am concerned. Some of the words are spelled so incorrectly that I can’t actually tell what she was trying to spell. She tries to spell things phonetically, but that often doesn’t work in English. She’ll grasp a spelling rule like ‘ai’ in raise, but get it backwards. She is still flipping b and d. She wrote “Sellping Test” instead of spelling test. I think she holds her pencil in a weird way. I don’t get to hear her read out loud because she pretty much refuses to, but when I do hear her she reads slowly, appears to struggle, skips words she doesn’t know or mumbles something nonsensical. She hates reading and will only read comic novels (I think that’s pretty common though).We gave up piano this year because after 4 years she could not read even the eight notes from middle C to high C.
On the other hand, her teacher (who is wonderful) says she is “at grade level”. She is getting B’s in her core subjects.
I cannot figure this out. My mother’s instincts are telling me something is wrong. Do I attribute the spelling/reading issues, poor grammar and messy writing to her ADHD and learning disability? Or is there more going on? I can afford more testing when my benefits roll over in January. I don’t think she was properly assessed for dyslexia. Is this just ADHD? Is she just not motivated to do a better job? Do I just wait and let the years play out and hope that as she matures this stuff will sort itself out? Please tell me what you can – I know only a tiny bit about dyslexia, and I don’t know if it gets missed a lot when assessments find ADHD and other learning disorders.
