Almost every dyslexic pupil has the following symptom. When he is very tired, having a fever, headache or flu his performance in any of the studying activities is way below usual. In fact the student appears to be a completely different person. It took me quite a while before I realized this. On these days I do the reading and I get them to talk just about anything they want to talk about or I just tell jokes. There is just no point in doing any studies on these “off days”. John is asthmatic and I usually send him home when he comes for class despite having an attack. Mac is athletic and does swimming as well as playing football. Occasionally when he comes for tuition after a heavy game we don’t do our usual routine. The same applies for most of the other dyslexic students.
