You are going to burn out fast with this attitude, little chicken. That girl with the patchwork essay TOTALLY did it on purpose because she left her essay until the last minute. The one you think is dyslexic needs to get tested and identified. I bet your college has someone (or a group of someones) designated to deal with students with disabilities. Get him to go there, and they will also have a protocol for extra time and support on the exam.
My experience with this is often that the student already knows about the problem, and my be working with disability people but has not let his instructor know this. Why would it be relevant to his learning experience? Doh.
You need a little perspective on the responsibility aspect. What are your expectations? That everyone does well enough to get an A? That's not realistic. Think about what your criteria are for doing a good job, and then ask a colleague if they are reasonable.

Missing a week of class does not excuse you from responsibility for that material! I know that you want everyone to do well, but when you are putting more effort into the paper than the student...you will get tired.
Through much of my college time I did notetaking for the disabled students union, often for people whose medical conditions meant missing a lot of class, or who couldn't take notes effectively due to dyslexia. It was good for me, too...made me not want to miss class and I learned to take beautiful notes. Often there is much more help available than people actually take advantage of.
Take care of yourself! From what you have said, you offer tons of chances and help to people. Don't beat yourself when they don't take you up on it.

News flash: you've never done this before. You expected to do it perfectly?

you're all right... and I think one thing I need to learn is that pushing myself to keep working till midnight is not going to work not least because by that time, even if I'm still there mentally, emotionally, I melt down.

Thanks for nice post.It is really very interesting to read the article.
I have gone through many blogs, sites and forums which been providing great knowledge about the same, as like recently i was reading something about dyslexia education on http://www.centerschoolpa.org the information that shared here is also great.
I appreciate your effort for supply this type of vital information and sure I'll come across your blog again when you will share something new.
Thanks,
