    Hi I’m 15 years old and over the past year or so I’ve started struggling with reading I seem to get bad headaches when reading or concentrating on writing. I seem to read a lot less than I used to and I don’t enjoy it as much anymore. Also I have trouble understanding what words mean, for instance every time I try to read I seem to have to read the sentence 4 or 5 times before I understand it. I’m wondering do I have dyslexia ? If so is there anything to help me with this ?

      Aleah, those are common symptoms of dyslexia, but dyslexia doesn’t just start suddenly when you are a teenager. You should talk to your parents about this and arrange to see a doctor, because the symptoms could also be connected to a head injury, such as a concussion. Sometimes young people who are active in sports might sustain a head injury and not think it was serious at at the time, but headaches or difficulty concentrating could be a symptom.
