Yes I am apraxic and have CAPD and poor fine motor skills which effects my handwriting. so I have to be dyslexic. I often make clumsy seplling mistakes (see! just like that I really meant spelling) and leave out some of the most important key words in a sentence like "not".

My oldest brother is Dyslexic but he's a NT. He doesn't have Asperger's.

I'm slammed with Dyscalculia. I am so bad with numbers that it's almost funny.

But thanks for asking.

I often skip lines when I'm reading and get numbers mixed up (eg. 5545 5455) so I have to go very slow and carefully when I'm doing mathematical calculations.

The opposite--hyperlexic.

My reading ability outstrips my comprehension--that's not a big problem, though, because at this point I can read anything written, and comprehend anything written at a college level, which is all I need to be capable of as a college student.

Actually, it never was a really big problem--by 3rd grade, my comprehension had caught up with my classmates', and that's when you typically have to start doing reading-comprehension exercises. I've always loved words and their definitions; missing the big picture doesn't pose much of a problem when you are interested in all the connotations in the words and the logic of a plot, and can put the picture together from the puzzle pieces easily enough.

Well I can't say I'm dyslectic in standard way. I have a very peculiar disorder making me loose words in a single sentence, but I only need to stop concentrating for a second, take some of the rithualistic behaviours I have, then go back and continue the sentence.

I'm diagnosed hyperlexic and dyslexic... The kind of dyslexic I have doesn't interfere with my reading too too much. It's the more rare "up + down" dyslexic. So basically I lose what line I'm on sometimes. I tend to highlight what I'm reading on the net as I read it so I don't lose my place. When I read in a book I tend to use my finger to hold my place frequently. If I don't do stuff like that, I tend to lose my place. Spreadsheets drive me batty, sometimes it looks like the words are climbing over each other...
