Cher was NOT diagnosed with dyslexia at school, unable to read she dropped out of high school at 16. She was diagnosed at 30 when looking for solutions to her own dyslexic child. Because of her dyslexia she became an avid listener and was able to retain information most others missed.

Though she found out at age 30 that she had dyslexia, Cher went untested in grade school and her dyslexia was unrecognized—many teachers thought she wasn't trying.
