See things differently?
Dyslexics think and process information in a different way to people who aren’t dyslexic. It is proven from brain scans. This means they can look at ideas, information or projects differently and other people may not understand why. Sometimes it feels like you are the only one like this.
Being able to see and process information in a different way is a dyslexic strength and valued in the workplace and community.
Challenges for Dyslexics
Short term memory
Ordering and sequencing information
Processing auditory information
Some dyslexics can read and write more easily than others. They have used their problem-solving skills and strong visual memory to compensate for their dyslexia-based challenges. Compensated dyslexics tend to read "by gist". They use context and their knowledge to work out the gist of what they are reading. this becomes a problem when you have to know what each word means (such as in maths, word problems and assessment questions). Increased workload makes their normal coping strategies less reliable and will increase feelings of anxiety.
