Kelly Ripa « never thought » that her son would go to college because he’s struggled with dyslexia and dysgraphia all his life, she recently announced.
« Joaquin is trying to get involved for college, and he has many choices, « said Ripa, who shares 17-year-old Joaquin with husband Mark Consuelos, on Wednesday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan.
The 50-year-old talk show -Moderator stated that she and Consuelos, 49, get « emotional » and « very constipated » thinking about their son going to college.
« [Mark] said, » You know, I never should thought he could go to college. « Because he was deeply dyslexic and dysgraphic, » said Ripa.
Dyslexia occurs when a person has difficulty reading or interpreting words, letters, and other symbols but does not affect general intelligence. Dysgraphia, on the other hand, is a neurological disorder that causes difficulty spelling and / or writing down thoughts.
Ripa said that « through hard work, determination, and relief », Joaquin was able to overcome his struggles and his learning difficulties as « a misunderstood learning difference « designated.
« Children with dyslexia learn how to read the room, they learn social cues … their other skills get [stronger], » she said, adding that reading is now one of Joaquin’s favorite things to do.
