‘Shine Ya Eye’ housemate Cross has disclosed his dyslexia diagnosis.
The 31-year-old made the revelation during a chat with Angel following his heated exchange with Nini.
“I’m not crying because of what she said to me, though it hurts me. I’m crying because you said I’m not all of these things she said.
“I don’t like how I’m feeling, I’m messed up right now. I know a lot of people are smarter than me, I have dyslexia.
“Nine out of ten people are smarter than me academically. I’m 31-year-old and most part of my life I tried as much as possible to get by academically.
“I didn’t know I was dyslexic till my cousin pointed it out and it’s sad to see that part of me, but that’s life.” Cross revealed.
Recall both Nini and Cross got to near fisticuffs earlier on in the day. During the exchange, Cross called Nini stupid and she retorted with comments about him being dumb and having a pea-sized brain.
Cross later tendered an apology to Nini for his actions.
What is Dyslexia
Dyslexia is a learning disorder that affects your ability to read, spell, write, and speak. Kids who have it are often smart and hardworking, but they have trouble connecting the letters they see to the sounds those letters make.About 5% to 10% of Americans have some symptoms of dyslexia, such as slow reading, trouble spelling, or mixing up words. Adults can have this learning disorder, as well. Some people are diagnosed early in life. Others don’t realize they have dyslexia until they get older.Kids with dyslexia often have normal vision and are just as smart as their peers. But they struggle more in school because it takes them longer to read. Trouble processing words can also make it hard to spell, write, and speak clearly.
