Society’s general understanding of dyslexia predominantly focuses on problems with reading and writing. Dyslexia, however, is far more multi-faceted than this, with an abundance of additional characteristics shaping how dyslexic minds work. While dyslexia can create difficulties at school and in day-to-day life, it can also provide people with different strengths and skills, which are often overlooked.
This collection of books gives a broader understanding of dyslexia, celebrating its diversity rather than seeing it as a disability. By considering both the positive and negative impact dyslexia can have on our brain processing, I aim to encourage and inspire those with dyslexia, as well as inform their families and teachers. Dyslexics often have an alternative perspective on the world. Instead of trying to make children less dyslexic, we should aim to be better at being dyslexic!
