Marvelous thought. :rolleyes: People will want us BECAUSE we are so special!

How long did it take for dyslexia to become so well known?

The word 'dyslexia' was first coined around 1900, when a schoolmaster observed that one of his students, a fourteen-year-old boy named Percy, "...often wrote his name as 'Precy' and did not notice the mistake even when his attention was called to it several times".

SomeT, I will have a look at that passage you sent to me tonight, after I've finished my coursework - I'm sorry I haven't been able to get round to it sooner.

I think it may have been recognised in america only from what ive heard since the beginning of the 1980's and then since about the beginning of the 90's in the u.k.,

I heard Tom Cruise is dyslexic too. I personally welcome the idea of people wanting dyspraxics to work for them. I think that you guys are right when you say that more people would know how smart we are.
