Dyslexia is more then not spelling.
Both the movement of time and planning the use of time can be very difficult for dyslexic children and adults. As a professional storyteller I have struggled for years with stage timing and how to be aware of the time on stage without breaking contact with the audience.
Another reality that many dyslexic children and adults face is shame and other emotional baggage related to their struggle to function in a literate society. A society that does not seem to recognize best effort or tried really hard, but only recognizes spelled everything correctly.
