Dyslexia is often associated with the challenges that it brings to those of all ages in the areas of reading, spelling, writing, and other academic obstacles. However, there are also many gifts that people with dyslexia share as a result of their different brain organization. It is vital to be informed of both the strengths and weaknesses of the dyslexic mind so that students can foster growth in all areas as they try to reach their full potential.
Not every person with dyslexia has every advantage listed above. All learners have differing strengths and weaknesses; these are most common among the dyslexic population. Without the proper support and growth mindset, it is difficult to harness these dyslexic gifts.
