What do Albert Einstein, John Lennon, Walt Disney and Thomas Edison all have in common? The answer is dyslexia.
1. We have many life challenges. We see the world in a completely different way. We communicate differently. Also, we have trouble organizing things.
4. We can act a little weird. Because we see so many different perspectives at once, we can appear incoherent in conversation. Sometimes we come out with strange ideas, and lack the ability to check if our thoughts are suitable for conversation. We can seem almost autistic because we are often unaware of social rules.
8. We often have low self-esteem. We are just as intelligent as the rest of you. We are fully aware that other people can read and write much more easily than we can. So many times we feel stupid compared to other people.
9. We may not know that we have dyslexia. This disability can go undiagnosed for years, and may not be recognized until adulthood. Unfortunately, people like us, with undiagnosed dyslexia often label themselves as stupid or slow.
I really hope that this post helped you learn more about people with dyslexia and encouraged you, when you are in their presence, to show them love and support more than ever.
