^ I believe he has dyslexia

IIRK his school is for children with normal/average to gifted intelligence and dyslexia.  OT but Iíve read very interesting books about educating twice exceptional children (gifted with some sort of disability).

Thank you both for replying! It sounds a very interesting school! I also find it quite interesting that a number of royals have dyslexia, but am very pleased at how open they are about it.

People with dyslexia are not idiots, they just need to learn more intensively for a while. It's great that the royals are helping their children and bringing awareness to the subject.

What I can't stand it that nowadays dyslexia and also dyscalculia have become a very convient excuse for the laziness of many school children.

I know they're not idiots, a close fiend of mine has dyslexia. I'm just glad that there are schools that can really help children achieve their potential despite any difficulties they may have- I live in the UK and while there is support in schools for children with dyslexia or learning difficulties, it doesn't seem as comprehensive as as the rest of Europe or even in the US. For instance my friend was made to take a second language qualification despite her really struggling with reading, writing and particularly memorising words. I'm also glad that royals are open about the subject and are willing to help their children, rather than ignore the subject and expect the child to succeed without the help they need (I think CG of Sweden had such an education/upbringing).
And ITA about people using dyslexia as an excuse, my boss claims she's dyslexic but her only trouble seems to be that she can't spell, her writing is clear, she writes letters and numbers in the correct way, she can write quickly and read at a normal pace, for example.

Being so open about dyslexia really helps break the stigma of it, and it's so nice to see that Philippe and Mathilde haven't hid the topic from the public and I think that not only helps Emmanuel feel more at ease but also helps public attitudes towards learning difficulties in general  Smiley

Sorry, it wasn't directed against you of course.

Another truly lovely royal family. Good parenting is going on here. The kids are happy and their needs are being addressed and you can tell there is a lot of love and warmth and ability to address "problems" head on. Good. I hope to see Elisabeth in a tiara soon shallow I know but these young women coming up into their roles is exciting I want a preview of them as ruling queens.

It's okay Smiley there is the awful stigma and presumptions about people who have dyslexia so I appreciated you defending them more than anything Smiley

Elisabeth is back at the college she attends in Wales



This looks from the photo to be an amazing college campus!  I grew up near Vassar College in NY which was (is) a campus with fine Victorian buildings and beautiful grounds, but nothing on this scale.  Lucky Elisabeth!
