Overcoming Dyslexia: Appreciate your exceptional skills

When you start looking at the exceptional skills Dyslexics have you start realising that there are indeed 2 sides to Dyselxia – the exceptional visual skills and the often debilitating symptoms.  Take a look at the 8 benefits of having dyslexia I produced and you will recognise yourself, your students and your children. At Empowering Learning we help students even improve their exceptional skills by being aware of how they learn and train those exceptional skills to be useful for literacy, numeracy and so much more. This week I had the pleasure of meeting a young man with a real gift for graffiti, all he needed to do was to start adding words.

Take a look at this video which points out some of the things that just don’t add up about the challenges that children face.

    I was afraid by helping my dyslexia l would lose the best parts of me but its just not true. l just keep getting better and better at understanding and helping the parts that get overwhelm which allows me to not miss out and enjoy the moment. Thanks Olive…….. Alison
