And would you hire this person as a daycare provider?

(see attachment)

I saw this posted up on the bulletin board at a local establishment and just thought the irony was too funny.

Yes, agreed. I was married to someone with severe dyslexia, and he knew when to check and what to avoid. However, his grammar and vocab were more than fine.

The good thing is that employers can't know the difference between dyslexic and lazy when making decisions.

I could see a dyslexic teacher being successful. I would personally prefer if it were not in the very early grades. IME, little kids are very black/white in their thinking and very focused on getting definite answers and teachers being demigods, infallible demigods. But by 5th grade or so and up, if a dyslexic teacher was upfront about his/her disability, I would have no problem with it. He could tell his students that if they caught one of his spelling errors, they would get an extra point or something. Also, you can have perfectly fine grammar and general language skills even if you have dyslexia.

Kevali's examples indicated someone who had no grasp of grammar and very poor language skills.

I meant "in general"

Does he plan on working in a field where he will be an influence on young children?

That makes me sad for YDS when he has to go out to get a job and that there will be people who won't hire him because of his disability.

"There's no way that I'd knowingly hire someone who I thought would be a poor grammar/spelling model. "
