    I disagree

    With much support a child with dyslexia will have a better attitude about school if supported early. I understand that it is too early to diagnose dyslexia but if there are enough other things there support needs to be provided.
    Example is if language is misused or came late for the child (undeveloped vocab, mis use of pronouns, late talker) and he/she has motor planning issues (seems a bit clumsey, not interested in coloring etc). There are enough issues there for help.
    My son talked at two and a half, did not walk until 18 months, and had severe motor planning issues. We started out in the other health imparements because LD was not able to be diagnosed until 2nd grade. That got him the services he needed until the second grade and LD was the diagnosis with Dyslexia. He has many accomodations and supports and thinks of school as a great place.
