Why Dyslexia is a Gift

The mental function that causes dyslexia is a gift in the truest sense of the word: a natural ability, a talent. It is something special that enhances the individual.

Dyslexics aren’t all the same, but they do share special traits:

  • They can utilize the brain’s ability to alter and create perceptions (the primary ability)
  • They are highly aware of their environment
  • They are curious about how things work
  • They think mainly in pictures instead of words
  • They are highly intuitive and insightful
  • They think and perceive multi-dimensionally (using all the senses)
  • They have vivid imaginations
