Why would people criticise a child’s best efforts because he does not measure up to their own abilities and twisted reasoning? Learning disorders are not to be looked down on; instead, motivation is the key. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Those that are ignorant of such issues and prone to criticise are, in my opinion, the less well educated. Great poem Paul. Cheers - Gary

Some of our greatest brains are dyslexic. Always think you're as good as your school. Teachers will probably say they haven't the time, which is a cop out.

I think what worsens the situation for children who have learning difficulties is the absence of specialised institutions along with highly qualified educators or teachers of a deep well of tolerance, patience and empathy, mainly in developing countries.. hence with such inabilities, children become an easy prey to narrow minded people and bullies.. This is a life concern that touches humanity and determines their identity and future.. To raise awareness and enlighten the dark hearts and minds in a didactic wonderful poetry is so like you, Paul.. A highly qualified teacher of great experience and worth and a poet of grandeur ! I so much missed reading you.. and it is my immense delight and honour to read your thoughts and visions. I would also like to congratulate you on the honour of your win and placement. My deepest regards and blessings.

You make a good teacher. A great lesson. I was not good at teaching, so I left.

Dear Paul, your thoughts touch my heart so deeply. I think this quote fits perfectly here. ' A child is like a butterfly in the wind. Some can fly higher than others, but each one flies the best it can. Each one is different, each one is special and each one is beautiful. ' Your ending thought curls gently around me. ' motivation is the key. ' You're so right, my sweet friend. Your words are beautiful, tender and so uplifting. Many wonderful blessings to you. :) Hugs, Brandy

Nice poem, in fact is not a dis order at all, simply a different way of seeing things, the dis order may be in not being dyslexic. :) xoxo

Dear Paul, good to see you write for the contest too, and i loved this, what you’ve conveyed here, hope it would raise awareness and let those with dyslexia know that they are not alone. And your message in this is truly powerful and much needed. A world that criticize everything, we can only hope people would accept and be more kind. Always love a poem that raises awareness on important subjects: congratulations on your win: thank you for sharing

Hello Paul. Good Morning. Excellent execution on the fibonacci format and wonderful message of worth of dyslexia. Although this appears to be an entry for a contest it stands on its own. Truly. People can be so mean and clueless and insensitive. Have a wonderful morning and day and may people open their eyes and ears. Peace and Blessings always. (smile)

Yes Paul, there is a huge difference between a learning disabled child and a lazy one. A wise, kind educator (and parent) knows the difference. The ignorant do not

- My father had dyslexia ... he was simply kicked out of school because they thought he was stupid (but, that was many years ago) ... fortunately, people understand better today - An important topic to write about, Paul - Have a lovely weekend :) - hugs

Wise words indeed Paul, i know this was written from your experience as a teacher and from my own perspective, having worked with student's with additional needs, I have nothing but admiration and praise for them as their achievements although they may be small to others are massive steps forward. :-) hugs Jan xx
