I totally agree with you. I have 2 adult dyslexic daughters, both in college. The psychologist that tested my daughters wrote in their evaluation that they no longer had dsylexia because they had gone thru programs and could read. However; they have all the dsylexia tendicies, other than they can read. The college advisor said there is no evidence now of dyslexia, so no accomodations. How do you get across to the psychologist there is no cure! So many professional educated people, I have come in contact with since their Kingergarten years, do not understand that your genetic make up doesn't change with dyslexia. As you stated you learn to make accomodations, it is always with you. You said it perfectly. It is life long.
My husband is 67 and still dsylexic. He dropped out of hight school in the 11th grade and went into a vocational school. He operates a business and is successful. I type letters he writes, he writes them the way the words sound, however, he is an avid reader. Thank you again, you words are confirming. My dsylexic family is artistic, they paint, sculpture and fabricate items from wood or metal.
