    Everyone has a limit. Some people can go no further with their mathematical capablities.
    Yes thats when they hit there intelligence cap.

    Einstein did **** at school, he is believed to have had it.

    He had to have someone do his maths for him for his science papers.

    So? He was still a genius.

    If his handwriting is so bad, I suggest he practices calligraphy.
    Way to avoid the point entirely.

    It's the principle - He listed various things not just handwriting. Undoubtedly there would be more also.

    Anyone unable to "reach their full potential" would need to be given extra time, if dyslexics were to be given extra time in order to "reach their full potential." Because of, y'know, fairness.

    Well no recognised person trained in the field does...

    Which correct me if I am wrong, probably means you are mistaken.
    Intelligence is an umbrella term. The way your mind operates, the way in which you comprehend, your capacity for language are all features of your intelligence.

    'Intelligence is an umbrella term used to describe a property of the mind that encompasses many related abilities, such as the capacities to reason, to plan, to solve problems, to think abstractly, to comprehend ideas, to use language, and to learn. '

    medical psychologists and educational psychologists are different.
    dyslexia is not an illness so it does not need to be handled by the NHS.

    Capability and execution are two different things.

    If that was so, then surely all known mathematical problems would be solved. Or at the very least, you're suggesting that every person has the capacity to solve them.

    Yes, but regardless if you are dyslexic you are deficient in both areas.

    They are still far better qualified to give a opinion on that than anyone on this thread unless someone has a degree in psychology here that I have missed.

    Dysprasia is probably made up like dyslexia. Anyway, this is just elementary mathematics i.e. arithmetic. Is there any evidence that they can't do algebra or say set theory? no there isn't. But, that would take some hard work.

    P.S. Anyway, dyslexia is just people being lazy. If you worked hard you wouldn't have any language problems.

    this is true and fair but the understanding of extra time is to enable students to fulfil their potential so they can have the same chances as everyone else.

    No, execution, your intelligence is not affected, find me any decent source which isn't a tory MP or someone of similar retardedness who say otherwise.

    you must be right because you were part of the same team of educational psychologists who have lead years of research arent you?... oh hang on.

    who are you to say dyslexia is made up?
