Have you been tested for dyslexia? They do have testing that can be
done for this and if you should have it, they have some instructional
therapy that can get around it quite well. My oldest son who is now 40
has it and has learned to work around it but when he was in elementary
school they did not know about this disorder all they could say was
"poor hand to eye coordination "
