    LOL I misread your post and thought YOU were a 9 year old. I wrote to let your parents know what you're doing. I re-read your post and deleted my comment. lol I'm sorry. I've never been diagnosed - growing up in the 50's and 60's you didn't get diagnosed with anything - but pretty sure I'm probably a little dyslexic. :) I often read things wrong, jumble words, etc and usually I'm more careful about it.
    But hello, and welcome.
