Chi Chat – are you dyslexic?

Are YOU dyslexic? Current statistics say 1 in 5 of us are!

Most of us were never diagnosed at school, we just knew we were a bit ‘special’.

When I compare my lifetime with my old school friends, it has certainly been quite different! How about you?

What was school like for you? Did you get told off if you dared to daydream in class?
By the way, it was a daydream that inspired Einstein’s theory of relativity and his awareness of e = mc2 – not shabby company! And what about being asked to read out loud to the class? HORRORS??

One of the tricky things about dyslexia is that one size does not fit all. There is a wide spectrum of wiring shifts in the brain which create different patterns.

And how are you at seeing patterns? What about needing the ‘big picture’ to create a frame, so all the details may have a place. This is why a mind map is such a perfect tool for dyslexic.

Chi Chat – Are YOU dyslexic?

Last week I was interviewed by Jazzy Olive from the Falmouth University and Bryan Clark plus her fabulous students: Oli Betteridge; Vaishnavi Deshpande; Charlie Sewell; Ridhi Nedungadi; Dan Stark; Kalina Surma – about having a ‘hidden disability’ or in my eyes, Ability! Following, over the next weeks, are their questions and my responses.
This first one is about how I have managed with dyslexia. Finally, it builds to a new product… Keep tuned! 

Please let me know your dyslexic stories
