I was twelve when my parents took me to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. A doctor named Lucius Waites diagnosed me with dyspraxia; he also diagnosed my younger brother as having a reading disorder, but it is not dyslexia.
I spent a short time in the hospital itself and took both physical and occupational therapy. The therapies helped me to get stronger and to cope with how to do things for myself. I would have stayed in the hospital longer, but I was too worried about my mom to do what they needed me to do; my mom was having back issues at that time.
