I’ve just written and recorded a video about dyslexia, after I was send a link asking for contributions for National Dyslexic Week.
Here is the script. I should be able to find it here 🙂
I’m can be quite disorganised, all information goes into one big bucket in my head, rather than being sorted in some way.
But because Dyslexia puts everything in one big bucket I can see patterns and similarities and connections between things really easily.
I can model complicated systems in my head, and see the differences between the models and what must have happened for a situation to occur.
It also makes me great at problem solving, I tend to look at every problem using all the information in my head, not just a limited selection.
So what I lack in organisation, I make up for by being able to think about organisation in a unique way.
I naturally see things from many conflicting perspectives, and understand that the perspectives are all real. This allows me to make sense to situations where other struggle. Dyslexia allows me to dissolve difficulties by thinking solutions around them. I’m always looking for a better way to do something,
For me, it’s a positive.
