Dyslexia is the world’s most common learning disability. An estimated 5-10% of the population has dyslexia. Yet there is still a huge global stigma around having a learning difficulty like dyslexia. Even where dyslexia is supported, there’s a lot of assumptions that those with dyslexia are under-performers.
This assumption is inaccurate. Dyslexia is simply when someone processes information differently. Much like many neurodiverse people, there are areas where dyslexics thrive and others they may struggle.
In general, dyslexics have difficulties when reading. This can range from getting caught on the occasional word to almost complete illiteracy. Dyslexia is a case by case basis that has different solutions for each individual. Sometimes assistive technology is the solution, some others may need a more direct approach.
But let’s not forget the many strengths of a dyslexic. Statistically, dyslexics are far more likely to think in pictures and perceive their environment multi-dimensionally. Put simply, they see the world differently. Different can open up a world of opportunity. The vivid imagination of a dyslexic allows for enhanced creativity on average. This innovative approach to the world comes second nature to people with dyslexia.
