City of Sydney Councillor Lyndon Gannon talks about his dyslexiaOctober 30, 2022
I can vividly remember the first time a teacher called me pathetic in front of the class for not being able to read. I was about 6 or 7. I was understandably stunned; I mean what sort of a person calls a little boy pathetic?
Apart from the reading side of things, and concentration issues, I was a bright and happy kid who enjoyed going to school. Some experiences early on, and the level of support and understanding of dyslexia within the schooling systems definitely set my academic trajectory.
