Dyslexia is one of the most misunderstood learning styles in today's educational landscape. Although most people associate Dyslexia with letter reversals and reading difficulties, Dyslexia encompasses a much larger umbrella of learning difficulties.
At one time, Dyslexia was defined as deficiency in brain function - a disability. We now know, however, that Dyslexia is not a result of a genetic flaw - or brain, eye, or ear malfunction - it is a difference in thinking and learning style that can cause confusion when dealing with symbols.
In fact, some of our culture's most talented people are dyslexic - as is true for many of the pioneers in technology, physics, and art.
Today, there is real relief for the struggle, frustration, and self-esteem-crushing symptoms of Dyslexia and the many other variations that accompany the same thinking style, including (but not limited to):
- Attention/Focus difficulties
- Reading Comprehension difficulties
- Reading disability
- Language-based learning disability
- Phonemic Awareness disability
- Dyspraxia (balance)
- Dyscalculia (math)
- Dysgraphia (hand writing)
- Auditory processing disorder
- Visual processing disorder

The Crazy Dyslexics"Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward.
While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
...And most of them are Gifted Dyslexics!
