My Backward Life with Dyslexia by Robert Chilcoate
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Robert Chilcoate was born in Laurel, Maryland, on May 21, 1962. He was born premature, and the doctor told his mother that he would not be able to walk or talk and that he would be deaf and blind. When he was in school, the school board thought that he was retarded. Robert overcame all of this and was diagnosed with dyslexia. He went to school depressed and could not sleep at night because he always worried about tests and did not know if he was smart enough to pass them. He thought that he was a complete failure. This is his life story of growing up with dyslexia. He is now learning more now than ever through a tutor that has been assigned by his employer. Robert wanted to bring his story forward so that people know how serious dyslexia is and that there is help for this disorder. Older people can obtain help through the state or county, and younger people through the school system.
