To ask A Question?:

Once you have joined, hit the reply. Say your new and you want to ask a question about... ??? Scholarships in the US for dyslexics? or what ever you want. www.dyslexia.com in San Mateo, CA USA, listens in on it as well as the British Dyslexia Society, UK. So your bound to get your answers met there or at least pointed in the right direction. I will be signing off soon but looking in on what's been talked about periodically. And maybe join bake up again later? To me sometime the e:ail is over whelming. Make sure you have your subject in the "Subject" Area of your e:mail. This becomes very help full when getting replies.

 

To leave the list:

you hit the replay button and type: leave in the subject and the body. Make sure you don't have tags at the end and don't add words like "I want to leave" "take me off your list, it's automatic and the computer only recognizes "leave" to take you off. Or go to the site and fallow the instructions.

evaluation:
I liked being on the list, I learned a lot and I have met electronically, wonderful people from all over the world with interesting stories and information. I highly recommend this group. The best part, you can spell bad and they don't care. I have been part of this list for over a year. Everyone has a different focuses and background so you are sure to find someone with the answer you need. Make sure you read a few if the past discussions before you sign up. However comma, after a year I had a hard time keeping up with the e:mails and with drew. I recommend it, but getting a separate e:mail.
