From a medical doctor's prospective dyslexia and depression are not related. However, it is the effect of the others telling the dyslexic student that they are stupid, repeatedly, that can cause depression.

I went through this growing up; I was the "stupid dyslexic". It is hard, but it must be done, to tell the dyslexic student to concentrate on what they are good at. Given the structural changes in the both the United States, and world economy, this is sound advice.

Going forward each of us will need to show the unique strengths that we each have, and how this can help the company we work for. This is where a dyslexic, focusing on the students strengths, has a significant advantage of their general education peers.

I created http://www.dyslexiaconsultants.com/ to provide the best general information on dyslexia online. In order to support the website I am starting an online tutoring business for highly motivated dyslexic high school and college students, using an innovative new approach based on the latest research in neural science, which was presented at the International Dyslexia Association, New York City Branch, in 2006.

In order to get a better idea about the capability of the online tutoring service I am offering, please visit www.TutorFi.com/demo and take a minute to view the video.

Please give me your feedback regarding the video and if you know any motivated dyslexic high school or college student’s that could use my special assistance, please visit me at http://www.tutorfi.com/manhattan-tutor and fill out the form on the right side of the webpage, below my picture.

I would appreciate you visiting me at http://www.dyslexiaconsultants.com/.

I think yeas of being pegged as stupid or lazy or whatever the flavor of the week is, then going through life knowing you are smarter than the intelligent ones can cause one to be depressed. Can it actually cause clinical depression where its primarily a chemical imbalance?... I'm not sure but if on the edge od depression the stress if dyslexia can push one over for sure. Some people say dyslexia is a “gift”...I say BS. Maybe if you have it mildly but full blown it’s a nightmare. I have spoken to people who say oh I have dyslexia then they tell you what their symptoms are and well...maybe slightly and that’s ok, but when you have it bad its simply a crutch
