If you read Burn's book, you learn there are many flavors of Dyslexia. 
He even groups Dysgraphia in. My challenge is at the word level, not the 
letter level. I do word substitution when reading and writing. What is 
scary is when the substitution almost makes sense, but on inspection is 
obviously wrong. I have made some really phenomenal bloopers when 
speaking to large audiences and have been called on them and laughed 
along with my audience...

Grammer check is my VERY good friend....
