This bit of new research is good to know about. A just published study from the the journal, European Psychiatry, used a self selected online survey of students at university in the disciplines of Engineering, Medical, Law, and Dentistry found that:

5/18 (28%) Engineering students classified themselves as dyslexic in comparison to 7/46 (15%) Medical students, 1/22 (5%) Law students and 1/11 (9%) of Dentistry students

In other words: dyslexia is common in these “high performing” disciplines. That is good to know and augers well for my daughters future!
