A Dyslexic brain or just highly visual?

This is a really useful example to show people and aid their understanding. See how you think it works with the Empowering Learning Principles. Please ensure you watch it to the end or you might be left with the idea that a “dyslexic brain” is inferior. I would like to rephrase a “Dyslexia brain” as an “advanced visual brain with exceptional skills for making high speed connections and associations”; that way you see it as a positive not a negative. I don’t think the concept of searching through every single piece of information in your brain to find the right one is completely accurate, you might be there all day! I love the concept of coming across useful connections that interest you along the way and totally agree that the more pressure you put on the harder it gets. Thinking about the comment at the beginning about not recalling information as clearly – the opposite might also be true; when I make high speed connections the information is super clear – the challenge is that others may not get where you are coming from, so you need to explain!

Please watch the video from kinalearn.com watch the youtube and leave your comments here.  I should love to see them.
