What is behind the strengths of #Dyslexia, #ADHD, etc

strengthssmallI am delighted that so many people are recognising the strengths of #Dyslexia, #ADHD, and other Neurodivergent ways of thinking and learning. Especially initiatives like #madebydyslexia and #youwillfailher.

Creativity, imagination and generation of new ideas are common strengths, and what do they lead to? 

  • Painters, artists, designers, musicians, film makers, photographers, writers, comedians, etc, etc – there is reputedly a design house in New York that only employs those with these skills.
  • Artistic talents are abundant and new ideas appear at lightning speed, sometimes too fast for others to keep up with them!
  • Inquisitive, creates new designs, even wacky solutions, thinking out of the box.

And there is more to learn about what is behind these strengths – how do they do what they do?  The answer is that they are invariably very visual people – they think and learn in pictures, known as mental images, located in their Occipital Lobe.  You can often see it in someone’s eyes; looking up when they are thinking and watching their own mental images.  Ask people you know about their creative and imaginative skills and you will probably be amazed to find out how they do what they do – their metacognition.

If you are great a mental images, you can quickly and easily learn how to use those same mental images for words to improve literacy and for numbers to improve numeracy.

Anyone is welcome to pick up the phone and ask me how this works, just ask for Olive Hickmott +44-7970-854388 and I will be pleased to explain.  I want everyone to be aware of how simple these skills are to learn and what a difference it can make to your life.
