To track some personally noteworthy events, observations and thoughts, letting them age and savor/regret them again a long time later.

I don't want to trivialize their achievements but there are many dyslexics who go on and do much better than that. The DAS courses my daughter attended wasn't helpful. She dropped out and learned to cope on her own. It is far from perfect. She will definitely lose marks over Spelling in her O levels. With determination and effort some of her teachers cannot even tell that she is dyslexic. Of course she can't escape the notice of her EL teacher.
Think about it. The famous writer Agatha Christie was dyslexic. If you visit the DAS, they have pinned up many more examples.
