This is my first experience of forum posts so am not very confident .

Hi In the class I am in at the moment I support a boy who has cerebral palsy and his associated difficulties with learning.

 In the class there is one individual who is a chatter box and bit of a joker this is his strategy to cover the huge difficulties he has with his dyslexia. 
 
There is another young lady who copies a lot  from other children in spellings and any writing activities .During tasks involving collection of information from text  she struggles to identify key elements of text and transpose into her own words. She has a tendency to copy text as a whole. 
Yes I feel she may be dyslexic as she has other issues along side this.

I have passed on my observations to the class teacher.
