“D” Dyslexia ~ The Creative Language ~
Who would say that, really? Let’s take a look at the people who have struggled to master, because you really do not over come, Dyslexia. Dyslexia stays with you for ever.
Let’s first discover what Dyslexia is and does to a person:
“Dyslexia is the commonest cause of learning difficulties for children and young people in schools and colleges. The word comes from the Greek meaning ‘difficulty with words’.
Dyslexia is often referred to as a ‘specific learning difficulty‘, usually with symptoms such as difficulty with writing and spelling, and often with reading and working with numbers. A dyslexic person may also have problems putting things in order, following instructions, and may confuse left and right.”
Let’s take a look how I mastered these symptoms: Ok, putting words in order, my freshman year in high school my favorite class, Latin. No, I am not kidding, Latin provided a positive moment is my studies. First the vocabulary became universal, the sentence structure made sense… the verb is at the end of the sentence and the grammar had to match use of feminine, masculine, and neuter.
Speaking can be a challenge too, the social impact of being dyslexic can be hurtful or humorous, depends on who your friends are. The expression ” No, my right, your left” and my all time favorite character….Thank you, George Lucas for Yoda, got to love the ‘Yoda moments’ Yoda spoke with his own creative language ~ “The verb is at the end”.
“As a dyslexic child’s difficulty is not visible – compared, say, to a child in a wheelchair – it often goes unrecognized by teachers. The result can be that the child is labelled as ‘lazy’ or ‘slow’ at school. However, an assessment can make a big difference to the school’s attitude, and frequently results in extra consideration and help for the child. “
I would not consider any one on this list to be lazy nor slow. So Who are those famous people that provided me with the encouragement to keep “I can Do It” attitude~
