In year 4 at primary I remember his teacher preaching to me. "Your son is not dyslexic, he is just naughty and lazy!" Oh how I would love to go and see her having now paid for a full assessment at the begining of year 10 to let her know the result: as SEVERLY dyslexic! 
It is still an ongoing battle to make sure he gets the access arrangements he is entitled to as he takes his GCSE exams this year, to the point that he is learning to tell the teachers himself when he doesn't! Keep fighting as my son now knows he is not stupid and will go into his next stage of education confident in his ability and with the grades he has the ability to achieve.
