BySTEVEN S.W. CHU, KEVIN K.H. CHUNG AND FUK-CHUEN HO

Ka-ho is a 10-year-old boy who was diagnosed as dyslexic at the age of 7. Throughout the interview, he appeared to be an optimistic, obedient and caring child. At home, Ka-ho reported that he spends most of his spare time watching TV and chatting with friends on Facebook. He told the interviewer that he seldom reads at home because it is diffi cult for him, making him feel frustrated because of his reading and writing disabilities.
