AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Peyton Barber was sitting in class a few months ago when a familiar problem surfaced.
“I was reading and the words would come off the page and then I would start reading backward,” the Auburn tailback said Tuesday. “I was wondering what was going on and I had always had that problem, so I went and talked to one of the counselors about it and they said, ‘We’ll get you tested.'”
Barber, who was diagnosed with ADHD in high school, found out he also has dyslexia, a fairly common combination.
