Some of our brightest people are identified as having learning difficulties. They have extraordinary talents at at the same time some often debilitating symptoms.
We coach people to keep and often improve their talents, whilst learning new skills so they no longer have most of the symptoms. The trick is to stay curious. Stop thinking the child is deficient and start working out how you can help them in a way that makes sense to them.
Like this you can overcome the negative symptoms of dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD and many other learning difficulties. Then the question is “do I still have Dyslexia, etc”. You will still have the ability to see things from different perspectives, but spelling, reading, organisation etc will all disappear. So do you really still have Dyslexia? What do you think. Can we change the meaning of Dyslexia to be a set of very positive skills? I would appreciate your views.
