ADHD Spelling Help

People with learning disabilities might have difficulty spelling, which can manifest itself in letter reversals, letter transposition, omission of letters or words, or illegible handwriting.

There are many different things that I notice about the way I spell. Sometimes I spell words completely backwards correctly, leave letters out of words or just leave the words out. I think this happens because my brain is wired and moves fast than my fingers/hands.

When I am under pressure, it happens more frequently.

  • Allow use of reference materials such as dictionary or thesaurus
  • Provide electronic and talking dictionaries
  • Use word prediction software that displays a list of words that typically follow the word that was entered in a document
  • Use word completion software that displays sample words after someone starts typing part of a word
  • Allow buddy, coworker, or supervisor to proofread written material

Here are some examples of what I was talking about above.

I went to th store yesterday and forgot to yub what I fro. (I went to the store yesterday and forgot to buy what I went for). Something I have been doing a lot is typing your everytime I want to type you. When I read it, I usually see you and not your and leave it.

I don't usually see all of these in the same sentence. I see letters and words left out more than the other errors.
