Unit 7 Assignment: Dyslexia Dropbox Alice is a 8 year old attending public school In Monroe County. Every morning Alice thinks of a variety of ways to avoid going to school. This battle has been going on ever since she started school. Her mother has to walk her to school every day to ensure she goes into the classroom.

She often has her books on her desk, unopened, as she feels confused looking at the letters ?jumping around? on the pages. Alice is convinced that she is beyond hope. Her teacher and classmates have subtly labeled her as ?stupid.? She dreads English and will put her head down and slide further down her chair, hoping the teacher will not notice her. When asked to read aloud she freezes in her seat, perspires profusely and stammers as she tried to make out the words. The class often laughs at her when she tries.
