Episode Summary

EDIT
Theo studies for a mythology exam with Justine, and seems to have a complete mastery of the subject. He is disgusted when he only receives a C on the test. He cannot understand why he continues to do poorly, and is tired of working so hard for mediocre grades. He says that he just could not understand the test questions. Theo tells his parents that he even went to the learning center for testing to try to get a grasp on his problem. When Cliff tells him to concentrate harder, Theo accuses him of failing to be supportive. Cliff and Clair accompany Theo to the learning center. The woman running the center tells him that he may have a form of dyslexia. After the diagnosis is confirmed, she gives Theo some tips on organization and suggests that he take some classes on dealing with the syndrome. Theo and his parents are thrilled that there is a way to treat his problem. His grades begin to show a marked improvement, and Theo predicts that he will soon get A's.moreless
